What to do in San Gimignano

While many visit San Gimignano for a very short time, there is plenty to do to keep you busy an entire day if not more!

A stroll down the entire town is required, as well as a visit to the Duomo di San Gimignano and to the adjacent Palazzo Comunale to view the Pinacoteca of Medieval art inside and a climb to the very top of the Torre Grossa, the tallest tower in town, to enjoy the best view of San Gimignano ever!

Enjoy a great gelato in Piazza della Cisterna, a delicious lunch or dinner at the many restaurants specialized in Tuscan cuisine and a climb up to the remains of the Montestaffoli fortress and lots of tastings of the local white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, will round up your visit.
