One of Italy's little gems. Go in winter, and don't miss it during the night. Try to visit without the crowds!

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.

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
