Beautiful place to visit, well worth the day trip. Worth getting there early as parking can be tricky. The bell tower was great and worth the €9.

This really is a fantastic place to visit and if you are staying overnight, great to see in the evening when the bulk of the tourists have left.

SanGimignano is very focussed on tourists. It has good parking and the signs are good. However be prepared to pay extra. All stores tend to have inflated prices compared with other towns in the region. Prices are higher often than in Florence or Siena. A...More

We loved this historic town. The centre was just lovely and there was so much to see. We enjoyed being there early in the day as the crowds weren't so bad.

To san Gimignano there is no train station, it only can be reached by bus. If you come through florence you have to take a bus or train to Poggibonsi and take another bus to san gamignano. Its a 90min ride
