Transportation from Rome to San Gimignano

by CinciWino

We will be arriving in Rome and need to travel to San Gimignano by some sort of public or private transportation with a fair amount of luggage. We have a car available to us when we arrive in San Gimignano so we don't want to rent a car just to get there from Rome. What are the best alternatives?

Re: Transportation from Rome to San Gimignano

San Gimignano is served by bus from Florence. It's not a very long trip. What's a fair amount of luggage?
I suggest taking the train from Rome to Florence---an easy enough trip--- and then dragging yourself and all that luggage the block to the bus terminal. It's literally right around the corner.
I don't have a timetable but a quick Google search should reveal all.
Enjoy Tuscany. How could you not?

You can do even better than that. SENA (http://www.sena.it/index_e.htm) runs a direct coach connection from Rome (Tiburtina station) to Poggibonsi. From there it's less than 10 km to San Gimignano, so you can have your car pick you up there or take a taxi or another bus.
The buses are excellent, with toilet, aircon and so on. There's no need to change so I guess that's the best option if you have a lot of luggage.
Cheers,

Travel Tips for San Gimignano

Tourism Office

by micas_pt

The Tourism Office is a busy “office” loaded with visitors. If you plan to ask for some information when you arrive in San Gimignano be prepared to wait (if you are visiting in peak season). As we didn’t feel like waiting and we had already read about San Gimignano, we gave up and left the office, so I cannot account for the helpfulness of the staff.

The Tourism Office is situated near the S. Giovanni entrance door – on the Piazza del Duomo, by the Town Hall.

wine lovers heaven

by call_me_rhia about antico desco - ristorante/enoteca

A wonderful restaurant set outside San Ginignano - among rolling hills and sunflowers fields. Wonderful delicious Tuscany food, and an even more wonderful owner. When I went there I was with a party of 12 people and 3 cars, when we left it was 12 people, 3 cars and six bottles of wine. The bottles of wine were a kind present from the owner. It's closed on Wednesday Pasta - home-made pastas! Pastas to die for, actually. Also delicious was the "costata alla fiorentina".

A Castle with a View?

by Jmill42

You absolutely can not miss out on the views from San Gimignano's castle. The name of the castle is the Rocca. It affords those who climb up the hill a 360 panoramic view of beautiful Tuscany. It is the best place for picnics, inside the city walls at least. The surrounding hills and vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see. Breathtaking.

Piazza della cisterna

by belgianchocolate

Piazza della cisterna is named after the well at its center. The well was very important during times of war so the people inside the city walls still had fresh water.

The Palazzo del Popola is the background for this well. It was build in 1288 and is the impressive town hall.

Collegiata

by Cristian_Uluru

The Collegiata is located over a stair in Piazza del Duomo. It was built in 1056 and dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta. It was restored in 1460 by Giuliano da Maiano.
Inside the church has got three aisles and on the walls and the roof there are wonderful frescoes which were restored after the daming in the Second War World.
On the white facade there are two gateways and three circular windows.
