  • San Miniato in itself is beautiful to visit and definitely its summit lies in the climb to the top of the Tower of Frederick II. The view is amazing.

  • You reach the Tower of Emperor Frederick II after a nice walk uphill from where you can see the town, just arrived at the foot of the Tower opens a spectacular view.

  • The fortress built by Frederick II for the castle of San Miniato, was undermined and destroyed during World War II. Rebuilt after the war about the features of the original, stands on the Hill of San Miniato giving a breathtaking view over the Arno Valley and the hills of San Miniato. On clear days you can see the sea. Worth going to!

  • Dark rainy day but a lovely view after a walk to the top. Bit hard to navigate the car in town.
  • We went at night so the views were mostly hidden. But the grounds were still beautiful and the city lights in the distance were pretty.
  • Perfect views, easy climb to get up and a very nice town to visit
  • Beautiful and peaceful village. Difficult to shoot a bad picture here. No need to climb the tower. This shot was taken from it's garden below.
  • Hard to take a bad pic here, 3 euro entry
