We discovered this quite by accident but so pleased that we did as it provided another dimension to understanding the history of the town and how it was.

We had a very nice walk in the city. Also, we took one of the best icecreams on planet Earth. The city of the towers is an amazing historical point of Italy’s heart. Everyone visiting Tuscany should at least spend 1h over there.

Yes, most travel agencies have excursion trips. But there is a train that can bring you to the San Gimignano area and from the station you can take a cab.
