San Gimignano: introduction

San Gimignano Hotel

Built on a hill dominating the Val d'Elsa, San Gimignano preserves the charm and atmosphere of an isolated center, first Etruscan then Medieval. Its appeal derives also from its past as a vibrant center of artistic excellence, exemplified by the many works of art held in the museums and adorning the convents and churches. Among the artists: Pinturicchio, Bozzoli, Fiorentino, Mainardi.

San Gimignano gave hospitality to Dante Alighieri Tuscan ambassador of the Guelfa cause. There are many artistic itineraries to follow through San Gimignano: the Cathedral, Palazzo Comunale, the Museum of Sacred Art, the Archeological Museum, the Apothecary of St Fina, and the Church of St Agostino.

Also well worth a visit: the Ornithological Museum, the Stronghold of Montestaffoli, the Church of St Bartolo, the Chrch of St Lorenzo in Ponte and the remains of the Church of St Francesco. Events include the Messi Fair, the Giostra dei Bastoni, the Film Festival and the guided tours Camminando Camminando.
