San Gimignano apartments - life among the medieval towers

San Gimignano is a remarkable walled medieval town not far from Siena in the province of Tuscany.

The ancient towers that shoot up from the cobblestones in this town have drawn admirers for centuries, and the town's charm has been evidenced in films like Tea with Mussolini and in books like E.M. Forster's novel Where Angels Fear to Tread.

We are pleased to offer the famous Torre di San Gimignano, whose amazing terrace and interior are shown on this page. Beautifully and tastefully renovated in the past few years, this accommodation is truly one of the most unique vacation venues you could imagine.

A San Gimignano apartment will place you close to the town's heart, where four piazzas intertwine: Piazza della Cisterna; Piazza Duomo, where the beautiful Collegiata cathedral reigns; Piazza Pecori; and the Piazza delle Erbe. Here, you have many options to enjoy San Gimignano's charm. Have a taste of the delicious homemade gelato - you will not find any like it back home! Meander into one of the churches or art galleries to bear witness to the town's story as it endured battles in the Middle Ages and blossomed in the Renaissance.

The literary and architectural backgrounds of this town are worth looking into as well. It is the birthplace of the poet Folgore da San Gimignano, and it is said that the University of Essex and parts of Yale University were modeled after the towers of San Gimignano.

You cannot leave San Gimignano without taking a piece or two of beautiful ceramic pottery home with you. As you relax in your San Gimignano apartment, you may overhear the sounds of locals laughing and walking by in the street below.
