  • Among the votes to be made, the church and this tower are to be done. The climb is tiring but the reward is magnificent!

  • San Gimignano is known as the "City of Towers", and there are still 14 towers. In his heyday, there were more than 70 bottles. You can see the town's landmark towers from a variety of places, but the view of the tower from The Piazza del Duomo and from the fortress on the hill was good. It is recommended because you can climb the tower of the grossa of Popolo Palace!
