  • Charm of a city or the time c is arrested, he could do even more to be out of time, too bad. A lot of tourist and saturated parking of the end of the morning!

  • Small city that can be explored in a day. It is very well preserved and is just beautiful. It is a must visit
  • Loved this place. Must go up to the top of the tower and enjoy the view of this town and surrounding
  • Pretty and great town one of the best walk in Chianti too
  • Fascinating and intricately constructed scale model of San Gimignano in the Middle Ages. The craftsmanship is phenomenal. Shows San Gimignano as it was when all of its towers were still standing. A must see.
  • Quaint little medieval town with dozens of towers. We went with a tour of Siena and stopped here for some sight seeing. Lots of leather shops and a torture museum. Enjoyed every minute.
