    Shuttle bus

    Outside the walls

    Favorite thing: You cannot drive into San Gimignano so there are car parks outside the city walls further down the hill and you can catch the little shuttle bus.

    Hills around San Gimignano

    Favorite thing: San Gimignano lies on a hill and is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. From the Rocca you have the best view over the valley and green hills.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are many arches, tunnels, secret passages and obscure mysterious places in San Gimignano. But you won't be lost! But you might bump onto all kinds of things, though... :)

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: San Gimignano's main square is very lovely in the evening with all the lights, it is nice even just to sit around and watch the people passing by. The medieval spirit adds to the charm of the place.

    Tuscan rooftops

    Italian men

    Fondest memory: No TV here. I think the social structure of society in rural Italy is great, the way the men stick together playing cards and backgammon and sharing drinks.

    Local women

    Fondest memory: These women know how to behave. While the men folk are down the pub they stay at home together to do communal knitting.
