Go here quickly to see hotspots, but don't spend more than an hour. City is too overloaded with tourists and nothing authentic is left. Go here to see it because you can't miss it, but please go to smaller towns in Chianti area straight after....More

Worth having a walk around this exhibition,museum. This traces back the history of San Gimignano back to the 1300 hundreds. It explains how the City was developed and grew.

From the moment you enter this walled city you will be mesmerised by its beauty, cleanliness and buzzy atmosphere. And the views from lots of places within are magical! You can't visit Tuscany and not go to Dan Gimignano. Lots of little eateries, market stalls...More

Everyone said to go here...a must see. We were so disappointed. The town is so polished for tourists it looks fake. Just full of overpriced shops and very crowded. If you're after a quaint historical village don't go here. Even the highly acclaimed gelateria was...More

Yes, most travel agencies have excursion trips. But there is a train that can bring you to the San Gimignano area and from the station you can take a cab.
