Location and orientation

A jewel of architecture in the Tuscan countryside

A 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. You can get holiday lettings in Siena, which are forty-five kilometres from San Gimignano. Alternatively, get accommodation in Florence to rent, fifty-five kilometres away, easily reached 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, 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 have 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, and you only need to travel about fifty to be able to immerse yourself in the thermal waters of Rapolano.

Travellers and 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 and visit the churches and museums that house masterpieces by artists such as Pinturicchio or Ghirlandaio. Not to mention the galleries of modern and contemporary art, the workshops of craftsmen, and the beautiful views of the countryside. Get an apartment in Florence, which is less than an hour from San Gimignano, to explore the culture and rich history of the area.

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, or summer dinner on a terrace between the roofs. During winter evenings, enjoy the intimate atmosphere of a local or in front of the fireplace of your holiday letting in San Gimignano.

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.

Here are the top 4 travel tips to San Gimignano

Top 4 travel tips to San Gimignano

1. Walk through the towers and on the walls

Inside the walls, the village develops around two splendid squares: the Cisterna and the Duomo. It is a succession of narrow streets, alleys, unexpected views, and 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, which is 54 metres high. After about two hundred steps, you can enjoy 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. If you are a history lover, you need a cottage in Tuscany to savour the history of the region.

2. 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, the 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.

3. 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. Book a holiday letting in San Gimignano and spend the day exploring history.

4. 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.
