San Gimignano is a perfectly preserved medieval town. It has more towers than anywhere I have ever been. The shops and galleries include some international quality at international prices. You can get what my wife believes to be the worlds best ice cream too. That...More

Not to be missed but gets very crowded Worth staying overnight as most tourists are day trippers and the town is more pleasurable early morning or late evening.

On our 12 hour fantastic Tuscany tour our bus stopped here for a short walk around and a fantastic gelato. It helped that our tour guide, Lavinia, lived here.

When I stepped at the door of this village I immediately fell in love. The cute tiny shops, the alleys, the ice cream. It was a trip to the past.

Amazing medieval city you can’t miss. I love to sit at the big square and watch the people. The city is full of tourists;)

You can aimlessly walk around. Or just laze around at a corner cafe or hop in to the world famous Gelato shop around the corner. And if you fancy a quiet sumptuous lunch your options are plenty. Must visit.

If you’re staying for a week or so I’d recommend staying in one of the many converted farmhouses with pools in one of the countryside locations which are about a 15-20 minute drive from Florence, Siena and san gimignano. Try... More

To san Gimignano there is no train station, it only can be reached by bus. If you come through florence you have to take a bus or train to Poggibonsi and take another bus to san gamignano. Its a 90min ride
