The Towers, the historic center and the Via Francigena
Have you chosen your hotel in San Gimignano and now you don’t know what activities to do with your children? Get out immediately to discover the Towers!
San Gimignano had 72 of them but to date only 14 remain: don’t waste your time and discover these towers that survived the incessant flow of time. A relaxing and fascinating walk just outside the city walls will lead you to the discovery of particularities and legends that will amaze young and old
After visiting the Towers, enter the historic center.
Look at the squares, the Duomo, the Rocca, the small shops of local artisans: enter each one of them and let even the youngest ones experience a part of history and tradition long gone.
In case you still have energies, you just need to take a long and relaxing walk along the Via Francigena. The walk starts from Piazza della Cisterna and winds for over 32 km along the Tuscan countryside but you certainly don’t have to go all the way: it’s up to you to choose how much time to dedicate and how to explain its history and importance to children!
Visiting San Gimignano as it was in the distant 1300s is possible by seeing the reconstruction of the city, on a 1: 100 scale, in an exhibition space of about 27 square meters inside the historic center.
This small but faithful attraction will surely fascinate both children and adults and will pleasantly occupy the precious time of your day.
