    “Very nice, historical place, shopping possibilities (also supermarket, petrol stations). In the summer by day tourists overrun, therefore, unfortunately quickly parking problems. The old town is worth a few visits, there are always "new" corners to discover. Excellent gastronomy available, as well as "tourist traps" - always before the hung out menus, then one knows before what one is (s) t. Excursions to the nearby Tuscan cities of Siena, Florence (about 45 minutes drive) or to Pisa, Lucca or the Toscana beaches (depending on the traffic situation around 2 hours) round off a holiday in San Gimignano.”

    “The location between San Gimignano and Poggibonsi is perfect. Excursions to and from Siena or Florence (Tip: from Poggibonsi by train to Florence) are no problem. Also shopping with the large supermarket PAM or the LIDL are outstanding.”

This is how holiday rental owners described San Gimignano

San Gimignano rises on a hill (334m high) dominating the Elsa Valley with its towers. Once the seat of a small Etruscan village of the Hellenistic period (200-300 BC) it began its life as a town in the 10th century taking its name from the Holy Bishop of Modena, St. ...

Gimignano, who is said to have saved the village from the barbarian hordes. The town increased in wealth and developed greatly during the Middle Ages thanks to the "Via Francigena" the trading and pilgrim's route that crossed it. Such prosperity lead to the flourishing of works of art to adorn the churches and monasteries. In 1199 it became a free municipality and fought against the Bishops of Volterra and the surrounding municipalities. Due to internal power struggles it eventually divided into two factions one headed by the Ardinghelli family (Guelphs) and the other by the Salvucci family (Ghibellines). On the 8th May 1300 Dante Alighieri came to San Gimignano as the Ambassador of the Guelph League in Tuscany. In 1348 San Gimignano's population was drastically reduced by the Black Death Plague throwing the city into a serious crisis which eventually led to its submission to Florence in 1353. In the following centuries San Gimignano overcame its decline and isolation when its beauty and cultural importance together with its agricultural heritage were rediscovered. The construction of the towers dates back to the 11th and 13th centuries. The architecture of the city was influenced by Pisa, Siena and Florence. There are 14th century paintings of the Sienese School to be seen and 15th century paintings of the Florentine School.

The best chocolate ice on the globe

Siena Province | Siena is situated in the heart of Tuscany. The student town in gothic style is surrounded by three hills. Go on a walk through the winding and steep lanes, be enthralled by the delightful architecture of the Gothic period and watch street artists perform amusing acts. The stroll through the city then passes on to the Piazza del Campo which is a shell shaped plaza in the centre and where numerous inviting cafés and restaurants are located. Alternatively sit on one of the cobble stones and enjoy the going-on. On the 2nd of July and 16th of August every year the famous horse race Palio di Siena takes place around this place.

Past the yellow broom and rape the streets of Tuscany lead to San Gimignano which can be seen from far away due to its characteristic towers. What is regarded as the Manhattan of the Medieval period you can climb up the Torre Grosse. The dizzy ascent via the transparent steps is very much worth it considering the spectacular view. Afterwards refresh yourself at the Piazza with a cool drink or “gelato” (ice cream). Insider tip: In San Gimifnano there is a small gelateria that has received the award of having the best chocolate ice cream in the world. Honestly it is just a dream!
