San Gimignano Bell Tower, San Gimignano
(4.8/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Built by the city's powerful patrician families in the age of feudalism, San Gimignano Bell Tower is a reminder of a once-ubiquitous architectural trend. Admire at the 14 different towers still in existence, the tallest of which stands 54 m (177 ft) high. At one point, 72 of these study stone structures accentuated the town's skyline. Climb more than 250 steps to the top of the Torre Grossa for views of the other towers and the Tuscan countryside.

  • A tower that charge entrance because it offers spectacular views of all the people of San Gimingnano. It is a little high (7.50 euros), but it is to enjoy.

  • The steps are really tanti....ma worth it. The view from up there is amazing. So is the vision of the double wall and all 14 remaining towers of nearly fifty pulled up to magnify the economic power of the important families of San Gimignano.

  • The towers already clearly visible from afar, impossible not to find them, you appreciate even walking along the Via francigena, an ancient city seem so modern skyscrapers
