  • 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.
