A very busy central square where we stopped and had ice cream on two occasions. The queues for the ice cream were huge!

This is an excellent location to visit in San Gimignano. Just of the main square area. The Church is a lively old building. The steps rise up in front making the building look imposing. There are many old buildings here including the local Council offices....More

A great small Piazza where you can sit on the steps and have an ice cream or have a well earned beer and watch the world go by. Nice atmosphere and full of history. Great little sidestreets to investigate.

The piazza was humming with tourists on the day we visited and the steps of the Duomo provided a pleasant place to rest. You really can't miss this piazza as it is the center of San Gimignano.

This is a wonderful place in which to soak up the late afternoon sunshine and just people watch. Get an excellent gelato and contemplate how good life is, thanks to San Gimignano!

This church (or cathedral) doesn’t look very interesting from the outside, but it’s well worth buying the ticket to visit as the ceiling and walls are beautifully painted. The ceiling is blue with stars, the walls covered in frescoes which tell various stories form the...More
