We visited San Gimignano with my family and spent the most pleasurable hours just walking around. A truly beautiful and magical place to visit. Loved it here!

The Rubino brothers have made a 1:100 scale clay model of the city from the 14th century. It shows all 72 towers. Worth the stop in their shop to see it.

Worth looking in, it’s free and gives the visitor an insight into what the town/ city looked like. Probably only 5 mins a most needed just down from the Bell Tower.

What a beautiful medieval town dating back to 1300. Unfortunately it’s completely over run with tourists for any kind of relaxing enjoyment of the location or sights. The town is pedestrian and therefore has a serious parking problem with long delays for anyone seeking parking....More

Such a beautiful replica - great to learn about the town and so much work has gone in to creating this model.

It is free but also not very much: a “toy“ model of the city anno 1300 without any additional explanations.

Definitely check this out after climbing Terre Grossa. This would be amazing for kids to see and imagine what the town was like in 1300. So similar still!

Do yourselves a VERY SERIOUS favour and visit this wonderful small town - up high. A seriously good variety of shopping - especially leather - is available. Good eating and drinking as well.

Yes, most travel agencies have excursion trips. But there is a train that can bring you to the San Gimignano area and from the station you can take a cab.
