Il Casolare di libbiano (farmhouse near SG) - Ques. about pymt?

by armysweetheart

We are booking several nights at the above farmhouse near SG, which came highly recommended on here! In order to finalize they have asked us to send the first nights payment by a bank transfer. No CC option. Is that pretty common for small places like this - or common for Italy generally?

TIA

Re: Il Casolare di libbiano (farmhouse near SG) - Ques. about pymt?

by Manara

The Casolare di libbiano is a B&B, in other words a very small establishment. Even if they have contracts with credit cards they probably have only the cheaper kind, in other words, they can process payments only by swiping a card in the POS machine. It is very common for small businesses. In the place where I work we have contracts that enable us to debit money using only the credit card details, but the commissions are much higher, so for us it's worthwhile only because we do several thousands of transactions a year.
By the way, have you asked them if they accept credit cards for on-site payments? With small businessses it is better to ask.

I have not asked them if they accept CC payment for on-site payments. I will do that. They do accept personal check, but the whole dollar to Euro thing scared me off that one.

Thanks for your thoughts. Just wanted to make sure it was legit. Looking forward to our stay there!

Travel Tips for San Gimignano

Archeological Museum

by Aurorae

In the museum there is an exhibition of archeological findings from digs in the surrounding area and especially from Ranza and Cellole. The Archeological Youth Group of San Gimigmanosupported by the Monuments and Fine Arts Service in Siena and Florence, has restored and catalogued these findings that are topographically displayed in show-cases. Besides the objects of a more common use (plates, bowls, vases, buckles and necklaces) particularly interesting are the cinerary urns (see picture) in a style similar to those in Volterra with a stretched out figure of a deceased person holding a plate containing a small offering to pay for the journey to the afterlife.

"Chiribiri" from inside

by satara about Trattoria "Chiribiri"

Here's the pic of our trattoria from inside, and there were only 1 table of Italian speaking people, some were French, British, I could sense American accent as well.
The girl who served the tables spoke Italian but we learned she was from Russia originally.

Medieval Manhattan

by BorneoGrrl

In its heydays, San Gimignano had a total of 72 towers whereby on 14 survived today. After I'll have to admit the towers are the most striking structure in this ancient town. After the plague hit most parts of Italy in the 14th century, the number of people here dwindled and so did the town. Most of the towers were destroyed to build other buildings

I cannot imagine a place with 72 magnificent towers long ago, no wonder they call it the Medieval Manhattan!

Torre Grossa!

by Jmill42

Overlooking Piazza del Duomo is "Torre Grossa" with its 52 mt high tower, the highest tower in the town. Wonderful views are reserved for those who brave the steps! Also in the building is the civic museum with many works of art. According to the brochure, the most important works are:

"Annunciazione" by Filippo Lippi, (1482), the "Crucifix" by Marcovaldo (1260), the tabernacle of Santa Fina, the patron saint of San Gimignano and "Madonna in Gloria", painted by Pinturicchio in 1512, and the fresco "Maestà" by Lippo Memmi, painted in 1317.

la Torre Grossa

by MM212

Attached to Palazzo Comunale, the 54-metre Torre Grossa is San Gimignano's highest tower. It was built between 1300 and 1311 and is one of seven towers surrounding Piazza del Duomo. However, it is the only one of San Gimignano's towers that is open to the public with access provided through il Museo Civico. Although I chose not to climb it, I imagine the views from the top are stunning.
