A fun place to visit. It is crowded with tourists though. And there are a LOT of cheesy souvenir shops. But it is worth the visit. And the torture museum is interesting, but sad.

This lovely little village is a UNESCO world heritage site and not to be missed! It has beautiful view points from fortress like walls that show of the beauty of the Tuscan country side. Gelato, bistros and little shops.

Response from John R | Reviewed this property |
Yes, most travel agencies have excursion trips. But there is a train that can bring you to the San Gimignano area and from the station you can take a cab.
Are most of the attractions in this town open on Sunday and Mondays?my husband and I will be traveling here in early July. Are the restaurants open on Sunday and Monday? Thank you so much!
