We bought combined ticket for museum and Torre Grossa. The museum was so lovely and interesting. You should try the art glass.

Great view to to rooftops and towers of San Gimignano from Torre Grossa. A bit expensive, though (9€) if you just come for climb because the ticket is a combo-ticket. For a free tower experience, climb the smaller - but free! - tower at the...More

A lot of the combined ticket items are very art and religion focused with less (no) detail about history and construction, but the tower itself really worth seeing. A lot of stairs, more than 300 to the top, but no problem if you have normal...More

The interior of this historic old building carries the visitor back in time. It is worth a stop, if for no other reason than appreciating the archetecture and the history of the structure. The tower is representative of many of the towers built during that...More
