What a charming place. Hardly any people ascending. Lovely wide staircase for most of the way up. Inexpensive entry. Go up for the views ❤️❤️❤️❤️.... never say No to views.

San Gimignano is a charming medieval town and a must visit in Tuscany. You can feel the amazing spirit in every street you walk. The views are really outstanding, esp. if you climb to the top of Torre Grossa. Check for yourself, you won't regret!
Take a look into the yard - without entrance fee you can see there some pictures on the walls. Very impressing architecture
