  • Honestly, I was rather disappointed, as San Gimignano seems almost completely taken over by tourist business. I know that this reads rather crazy having been there as a tourist myself, but the tourist / locals ratio is really off. Worse only in Bolgheri... I'd rather recommend visiting Volterra.
  • This art museum is nice but very small. Not something to go out of your way for, but if you're in town definitely stop in for a few minutes to see the model of the city as it was around the year 1300.
