    There was a fortress, and a small hill to the West of the town of San Gimignano. Location, good views overlooking the area was rough fortifications. You could understand is known as Tower City view.

    You don't need long to wander around this ruin of a fort, but its worth a wander and to see the great views form the walls of the spectacular countryside.  more »

    The castle in question, there are only ruins. But you can enjoy a moment of respite as few tourists come down here and a nice view of the Tuscan landscapes nearby.

  • 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.
