    “San Gimignano is quite central in Tuscany. By car you can reach very good all nice cities. Shopping is super, one only has to always drive a little further. Restaurants are not close by, here you always have to drive a little further, because the house is located just in the vineyards. The prices in the restaurants were almost always very expensive, but what is known for Tuscany. Nevertheless, San Gimignano worth a visit, as always when traveling to Italy!”

    “San Gimignano is idyllically situated absolutely worth seeing and in the midst of Tuscan vineyards in its historical, medieval unity.
    Here on the border of Chianti much white wine and in particular the Vernacciatraube is grown, which gives a fruity, fresh, very drinkable white wine.

    There is a large COOP the outskirts of San Gimignano. Here you get basically everything you need for your daily needs. From the price level one is slightly below German prices. In addition, there are two market days in San Gimignano, where you can get clothes, all sorts of knick-knacks but also fresh fruit, vegetables and regional specialties producer. In Poggibonsi there is a huge Pam supermarket. There is then all that you do not get in the COOP.

    San Gimignano has a great gastronomic offer. In the smaller streets, usually tucked away there, as so often, the nicer bars and bistros, where you can sit low and is very quaint and great food. Recommend I want the ice cream shop in the Via San Matteo, the gateway of about 50 meters on the right side. Conveniently, and by far the best ice cream, which we ate on the trip. From € 2 per taste (there are no balls in Italy) do not be deterred, cheaper is not it and it is worth every penny!

    When the restaurant we can recommend Il Trotatore. Super pizza and huge steaks grilled over an open fire. Prices as at home, not a tourist trap!

    At the exit direction Certaldo / Camporbiano there is a children's playground and you can park for free in Via Giovanni Cappelletti.

    The famous cities can be reached from San Gimignano from problems and parking in the car parks corresponding German level. In Siena you can park in Via Esterna di Fontebranda and drive up behind the city wall right to the (free) escalator in the city, since it comes directly out at the cathedral.

    In Colle di Val d'Elsa is every 1st Saturday of glassmaking market and there is a wonderful and wildly romantic trail to the bright blue Elsa. Entry is at Via di Querciolaia / Via Fratelli Bandiera.

    Colle di Val d'Elsa and Certaldo are almost free from the big tourist crowds, yet well worth seeing. In Certaldo there is in the Upper Town (take the cable car to boot!) Appreciated also 20 nice small, cozy bistros and bars for the evening.”

    “For us served San Gimignano and the surrounding area simply the stereotype of Tuscany, in the positive sense. We were not the first and not the last time here.
    Shopping is no problem, the COOP is close and to go by car, in the town once a week farmer's market and with Sergio Dondoli at Piazza de la Cisterna (such as that already sounds), there are the best ice cream in the world. After all, he has won several Eisweltmeister.
    The attractions in Florence, Siena and Pisa are within easy reach by car. search the Internet Parking, Set Navi and go. This worked great with us, of course, always charge you, but centrally located and safe.
    And if your feet hurt, you can relax by the pool with views of the countryside.”

    “San Gimignano is worth in any case. However conveys the wealth of tourists who visit the city every day and the numerous souvenir shops more like a museum city. Therefore we recommend to compare to see the neighboring towns Colle di Val d'Elsa, Certaldo and Volterra.”

This is how holiday rental owners described San Gimignano

The "Historic Center of San Gimignano" is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
San Gimignano was a stopping point of the “Via Francigena”, the ancient road used by the catholic pilgrims coming from North Europe on their way to Rome.
source: Zambon
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!
