San Gimignano

Welcome to our evocative medieval town !


The turreted village of San Gimignano stands 324 metres above sea level and rises on a hill overlooking the Valdelsa valley. Inhabited since the time of the Etruscans, the town become famous and powerful in the early Middle Ages due to its location along one of the wealthiest and most frequented roads of the time: the Via Romea also known as the Via Francigena.


Its glorious medieval past is still visible today thanks to the 15 remaining towers and other architectural wonders from the 12th and 13th centuries such as the doubled city walls, the two city gates, fountains, churches as well as the numerous public and private buildings surrounding the suggestive Piazza della Cisterna and the enchanting Piazza del Duomo



Today, as during the Middle Ages, San Gimignano maintains its characteristics as a bourgeois city of artisans but above all it is a city whose wealth comes from the land since its main sources of income are wine, oil and saffron.


Not to mention the mystical charm conveyed by the stones and the romantic atmosphere of the bygone days that permeate the piazzas and the narrow, shaded streets. A proud and honest spirit that can be perceived by the manner in which the city’s old town centre has been meticulously preserved makes San Gimignano a must-see on all national and international tourist agendas ...
... so all you’ve got to do is come and see it !!
