Go inside the Duomo di San Gimignano

Inside, you'll be able to see ancient frescos that recount stories from the Old and New Testaments, along with stunning stripped pillars and archways.

Climb to the top of Torre Grossa

This is the tallest tower in the small town, and it gives gorgeous views of the Tuscan landscape.

Find the tiny Borgo Stretto

This little road is filled with tiny shops, open air markets, and an adorable little church. An interesting street, this off the beaten path location will bring a smile to anyone's face.



Known as the city of 100 churches, this Tuscan town requires at least two days to really soak up its magic. Some ideas for exploring include:
