  • Very lovely place for a walk....olive trees and fantastic views of Tuscany. The tower is the next highest viewpoint. This is the highest free spot I believe....
  • The sights of the surrounding countryside seen from this vantage points are breathtaking! Don't miss this if you are in San Gimignano.
  • Not much left of the fortress but there are amazing views from one of the towers.
  • We did not like the rock, although the village is beautiful. The views from the Rocca are spectacular. Visible from outside of the village

  • Unfortunately Daniel perimeter walls are left alone but from the top of one of the towers you can admire a beautiful view, especially at sunset. And there are plenty of visitors who flock in the small space available.
