  • The buildings are impressive from the outside with great colors. The square is swarming with tourists and the line to get into the church is mega long. It moves fast though, but not very impressive from the inside. Impossible Challenge: try to avoid being in any of the tourists photos taken.
  • Beautiful and quaint town known for its towers. Walking through transports you back in time to a slower, quieter and friendlier time. Lots of shops and restaurants around each nook. High enough to overlook the Chianti region.
  • Impressive before Sunset, great reddish color on the yellow stones and bricks
  • The square is very nice but very touristic unfortunately.
  • Take a walk in the narrow streets of San Gimignano end enjoy its amazing medieval buildings. San Gimignano historical center is a UNESCO world heritage site.

Staying outside the busy town center allows you to rest in peace and privacy, just a short drive from all the urban action. Slightly more expensive, self-catering apartments in the city center offer comfortable suites, where you can cook your own meals and reach the best nightclubs on foot.
