a medieval gem


This is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Tuscany, thanks to the many towers still standing within its walls.

We can climb on top of the highest one, the so-called "torre grossa". San Gimignano holds very special works of art in its churches, amazing frescoes on the walls of the main church, the "Collegiata" and also in the Sant'Agostino basilica. We will then walk up to the former fortress, built by the Florentines in the XIV century. Here we can enjoy the panorama from the only tower left of this complex.

We will walk along the historical centre of San Gimignano and its main squares, looking at the several towers built in the Middle Ages.

A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent tour of San Gimignano. We got to understand the city and taste excellent products from the area. We went up to the top of one of the towers and the sights were amazing. Be ready to walk...
