DESTINATIONS

San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is famous worldwide for its several medieval towers characterising its architecture and landscape.

During the Middle Ages, in fact, the great patrician families had as many as 72 towers built. Today only 14 towers remain (one of which belongs to Palazzo Becci), but the 13th/14th-century look of the village is nonetheless still intact.
Besides the towers, there are also other artistic attractions such as the Romanesque cathedral, the beautiful Piazza della Cisterna (where Torre Becci Suite 6 is situated), the Church of St. Augustine and the Podestà Palace, which "supports" the second highest tower of the village, Torre Rognosa (almost 52 metres high).

Moreover, in San Gimignano you will find all the necessary services yuo might need such as shops, bars, restaurants, museums, pharmacies, supermarket, banks, etc.
Lastly, San Gimignano is the ideal starting point both for day trips to Florence and Siena, and for reaching the nearby Chianti villages (such as Barberino Val d'Elsa, Greve, Panzano, Castellina, Radda) or the medieval villages of Tuscany countryside (like Certaldo, Monteriggioni, Volterra).

Reviews

  • 4.9/5 The apartment was incredible! One of the best locations we have ever stayed... Check in was great, we were met at the parking lot (#2) and escorted to the apartment - and it was passed the normal check in time. The only part that could be better was the communication before our arrival. I sent emails to our booking agent, but I do not think they were read - since the same questions were asked to us right before our arrival. But overall - a wonderful trip and location!
