In the piazza there are shops and cafes as well as the wonderful collegiate church with fabulous frescoes. People are hanging out on the stairs of the church. There is a good opportunity to take pictures of several of the towers.

This small town does not stop you from feel the warmth of the place or the people, but if you want peace, this is the place to be. Sit on the steps and enjoy Gelato.

The Piazza del Duomo is a big open space in front of the duomo and part of your walking tour and visit to San Gimignano. We saw performing artists one day, and a huge wedding on another day.

This was a part of a tour, and this was a surprising interesting stop. The ornate inside was beautiful, the sculptures were just as interesting. Don't overlook this stop, go in and it's worth it.
