San Gimignano to Florence by train? Any ideas?

by xxgirasolexx

Hi! I was just wondering if anyone has taken the train from San Gimignano to Florence. Where is the train station located in San Gimignano? I've been there before, but I don't remember ever seeing it. Also, do I have to change trains anywhere? Thank you for your help!

>I don't remember ever seeing it

... because there isn't one. You'll have to take the bus.

And you'll probably have to change buses in Poggibonsi.

Timetable info here:

Timetable for Florence>Poggibonsi:

then choose 'Toscana' from the drop-down menu, then 'Linea Firenze-Siena', which will give you a PDF leaflet.

Alternatively, get the train to Poggibonsi then the bus to S. Gim.

the wife and I stayed in Florence in 2006. we just waltzed over to the bus station (16 platforms!) and bought tickets for San Gimignano. I recall it was about a 1 hour trip. SG is a walled city with alot of overpriced leather shops, but it is dee-lightful. we were having a cappuccino in the gorgeous piazza when we heard heavenly harp music. Then I heard a trippingly light female voice. I turned to see a beautiful young woman singing while she was playing her harp!! I thought I had already died and gone to heaven!

Travel Tips for San Gimignano

Where did all the towers go?

by sandysmith

There used to be 72 towers here but today only 14 remain. At one time it was forbidden to build a tower taller than La Rognosa, the 165-foot-high tower of the town hall so to compensate wealthy families built twin towers! The tower of the new town hall in 1298 surpassed the height of La Rognosa. Today this can be climbed for stupendous views over the town and surrounding tuscan rolling countryside.

Markets

by Jmill42

I was not there long enough to figure out the schedule, but there are fresh meat, poultry, and dairy markets some mornings in the main piazza. Fresh produce for evening meals made even a horrible cook (me) look good!!

Torre Grossa

by Polly74

The towers grew taller and taller until some bureaucrat with a very small tower one day said: "Your towers can not be any bigger than our official San Gimignano City tower".

Here it is, the Torre Grossa (the Big Tower), the biggest tower in town

Via del Castello

by KiNyA

I don't know why, but while visiting San Gimignano I really enjoyed being here.
The atmosphere at Via del Castello and Piazza della Cisterna was amazing.
As well I just adored this big green building. It's not as magnificent as the towers but it sure looks amazing!

chianti hills

by randychiara

see, everybody can afford coming here.. it's just on the way between san gimignano and siena... it's not true that rich people only come here..

don't go on organized tours, just take a bus and explore san gimignano by yourself!
