the Rocca is very small and remote from the center of town,so less visitors would go there.an age-old lookout platform overlooking San Gimignano.

“nice view - and it's free”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2011

For those who don't want to pay 5EUR to go on top of of the Torre Grossa, The Rocca is the next best thing. It is shorter than the Torre, granted, but it still provides an amazing view into the Tuscan scenery, and it doesn't cost a thing.
