and some wonderful Shops for leather goods and kitchen wares. Enjoy!
You’ve all heard of Siena and Pisa and Florence, but San Gimignano is right up there for beauty! We spent a night here and had a great time. The views of the surrounding valleys are immense and the old town is just beautiful. We’ll be...More
This is an easy place to watch the world pass by. Just make sure you have a gelato in your hand and find a nice step or wall to lean on.

The streets and town centre of San Gimignano are bustling with activity and tourists. A few years prior to our visit to San Gimignano, we had visited Matera and the city was like a ghost town in the afternoon (which was not necessarily a bad...More
Walk around and visit a fantastic well preserved historical center of Italy. Thursday mornings there is an open air market that sells fruits, clothes and other items. Be sure to visit the museums and take in the award winning gelato.
There are many things to see in Italy, but to really see Italy as a traveler, this is the town to see. Part of the beauty of this wonderful town is the approach from countryside. The looming medieval towers and walls call out as you...More

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 the Italian country cottage website. Then hire a car and visit all 3 locations on day trips. Siena is my favourite but they’re all fabulous.

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

OHHHHH do I have a place for you! We stayed at the Guardastelle in a cottage (the one on their website with the spiral staircase) and it was glorious! They offer a B & B style experience or you can rent one of the stand-alone cottages. You can walk to the walled city of San Gimignano, take part in one of their cooking classes, taste their wine and olive oil... We enjoyed everything about this place, especially Suzanne and Fausto - the owners.
