  • We walked up here on a cold and icy day after several inches of snow the previous day. It has a magnificent view of the town and the vineyards from the parapet wall and the garden inside the citadel i...  more »
  • When you get to this place, do you think you didn't see the city; but this place you need to understand how it formed the city ... Well worth a visit and also this place besides those reviewed in this city is worth a visit.

  • San Gimignano small watchtowers on the walls of the park along the walls up to the panorama for the scenery. But, personally, I go along the opposite view point in the city of San Gimignano from the cliffs overlooking the scenery is much better.

  • Access to the tower via narrow stairway, wide enough for one way traffic. Park setting in the courtyard with benches and lots of shade. Access through two gates, one from the main square and the other can be reached through the park and multiple locations, paths that surround the Rocca. Perfect 360 view with best lighting on the towers is early morning and late just before sunset.
  • Great views from the top! Surrounded by olive trees with a pretty courtyard in the center. Definitely worth climbing to see this. It's also free. We went around lunchtime(1:30) and it wasn't too crowded. Later on when looking from one of the towers it was very crowded so try to go earlier on.
  • Spectacular view from the top! Climb like 30 odd stairs to see it. Includes a garden with olive trees and such.
  • Beautiful place and perfect stop to see the sunset.
  • My favourite place in San Gimignano, with the best views. Lovely olive trees. A perfect place for a picnic.
