Holiday rentals in San Gimignano

Between the medieval walls

The holiday rentals in San Gimignano, within the walls, are in historical residences, farms, and even in some medieval towers, where they are spread over several floors. The buildings are old, but the rentals are equipped with every comfort, and often with terraces that offer unique views over the city and the surrounding countryside.

Luxury villas and old farmhouses

Outside the walls, even just a few minutes walk from the city gates, restored farmhouses, villas and old barns, offer you the opportunity to stay among the vineyards and olive groves of the Tuscan countryside. You can alternate visits to the old town with walks in the countryside, dives into the pool and lunches in the shade of the pergolas.

Holidays in San Gimignano

Location and orientation

A jewel of architecture in the Tuscan countryside

Small town in the province of Siena, San Gimignano is located on top of a high hill overlooking the Valdelsa, in a strategic position chosen by the Etruscans who settled there at least from the third century BC. About forty-five kilometres from Siena and fifty-five kilometres from Florence, it can be easily reached from both by car, train or bus. You can only walk around, but there are several convenient parking lots just outside the walls that surround the city, and which are interrupted by five entrance doors.

Manhattan of the Middle Ages

This is the name that has been given to San Gimignano for the towers that draw its unmistakable profile. Originally there were seventy-two, a symbol of the power and wealth of the families that owned them. Now there are sixteen (or fourteen, depending on whether or not you include the bell tower of the Collegiate Church and the house-tower Pesciolini, different from the others). The five square kilometres of cities have remained almost intact since the Middle Ages, and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990.

Excursions in the surroundings

A holiday letting in San Gimignano can also be a great base for excursions to other beautiful towns in Tuscany: just thirteen kilometres away is Certaldo, less than thirty Monteriggioni and {{Volterra}{83861}, and you only need to travel about fifty to be able to immerse yourself in the thermal waters of Rapolano.

Travellers and related activities

For a holiday of culture and relaxation

San Gimignano, rich in art and history, is the perfect destination for those who want a cultural holiday, but also pleasant and relaxing, away from the chaotic rhythms of the city. You can walk through the alleys and squares, visit the churches and museums that house masterpieces by artists such as Pinturicchio or Ghirlandaio, the galleries of modern and contemporary art, the workshops of craftsmen, and meanwhile admire the beautiful views of the countryside.

For wine lovers

La Vernaccia di San Gimignano is a white wine (DOCG) as old as the towers. In fact, it was produced, and was very well known and in demand, already in the Middle Ages. You can buy or taste it almost everywhere in the city, along with other excellent wines, preferably accompanied by cheese, cold cuts and croutons. You can also visit the Museum of Wine and Vernaccia.

For lovers

Walk with an ice cream in the shade of the towers, sunset on the hills, summer dinner on a terrace between the roofs, but also winter evenings in the intimate atmosphere of a local or in front of the fireplace of your holiday letting. San Gimignano offers this and much more to lovers (but also to others).

Did you know that in San Gimignano many famous films were shot?! The town is practically an open-air film set where the famous game Assassin's Creed was also set.

Top 4 travel tips

Walk through the towers and on the walls

Inside the walls, the village develops around two splendid squares: that of the Cisterna and that of the Duomo. It is a succession of narrow streets, alleys, unexpected views, magnificent churches. Towers and tower-houses tower over the other buildings. The new Palazzo del Podestà, which houses the civic museum and the art gallery, leads to the Torre Grossa, the highest tower, 54 metres high. After about two hundred steps you can enjoy from above the spectacle of the village with the rolling hills all around. Another splendid panorama is that of the Rocca di Montestaffoli, which can be easily reached from Piazza del Duomo by crossing Piazza delle Erbe. The promenade of the walls, on the outer walls, extends for about two kilometres around the city.

The Cathedral

The Duomo, or Collegiate Church, finished in the middle of 1100, is one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture in Tuscany. The interior, with three naves, is entirely frescoed. Among the frescoes you can admire San Sebastiano by Benozzo Gozzoli and the Stories of Santa Fina del Ghirlandaio in the Chapel of Santa Fina, patron saint of the city. Also noteworthy are the altar by Benedetto da Maiano, the two wooden statues by Jacopo della Quercia representing the Annunciation, and the famous thirteenth-century Crucifix in polychrome wood.

The spice bowl of Santa Fina

The complex of the former Conservatory of Santa Chiara, in addition to the Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art and the Archaeological Museum, houses the Spezieria di Santa Fina. The room is set up in such a way as to reproduce a medieval pharmacy, partly a laboratory and partly a shop for sale. Precious antique pharmacy vases for medicinal preparations and apothecary's recipes are on display.

Saffron

Another product of the fertile hills of San Gimignano since ancient times is saffron. The beautiful purplish flowers from which the spice is obtained bloom at the end of October. In the past it was used not only in the kitchen, but also as a medicinal plant and as a dye. It has always been extremely precious, so much so that in the Middle Ages it was exchanged for gold, and often used instead of money. Zafferano Purissimo di San Gimignano' is a PDO product.
