I loved this little village/town with all the towers and the capers growing on the walls! The views from the upper most point down into the valleys were stupendous.

Just sit & enjoy the bustle of the visitors as they walk about the square- it's quite refreshing & fun.

Wonderful walk and sightseeing for a day, nothing more than that. You can visit plenty of souvenirs’ stores and places for good gellattos. The walk under the huge towers is unique for a lifetime. Spend the whole day breathing the silence of this small village....More

Standing in the center of this historic town you feel you have stepped back into time. Especially if you are there in the morning before all the tourists have arrived. It is an image that will stay with you forever.

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

I hope it's not too late to answer your question. The best thing you can do is to take the train all the way to a little town called Pogibonsi. The train does not stop in San Gimignano. So, take a bus from Pogibonsi to San... More
