The view from the top of the tower from the terrace is one of the best views you will ever have in your life. It makes you feel like a celebrity to stay here. It is a very special place. Giulia the owner does a great job explaining how everything works and provides a very nice welcome "gift basket" with lots of helpful items. There is no question that you need to be somewhat fit to stay here due to all of the stairs but you get used to the logistics as the stay goes on and the view from the top makes it all worthwhile. San Gimignano is a stunningly beautiful town and it is even better at night and in the morning before the bus tours arrive for their visits. It is like something right out of a movie. Highly recommended for a very unique vacation.

A fantastic and completely unique place! The views from the roof terrace are awe inspiring. Beautifully presented accommodation and an exceptionally comprehensive welcome pack of provisions from the owners who made us feel very welcome. A magical experience!

Torre San Gimignano was excellent - we really enjoyed the view from the top of the tower and the market on Tuesdays. Fantastic experience - I would recommend it to anyone.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the tower and recommend it to all who would like to spend their holiday, or at least part of it, directly in San Gimignano. You don't feel like a tourist when staying there. First class views and the facilities in the tower are excellent. I was treated very kindly by the discrete owners (Giulia in particular). I would happily go back. Understand the tower's origins and you won't have any problems with steps etc, rather you will appreciate, value, and enjoy it.

San Gimignano is a unique place. The town is inspiring and visually stunning, with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and everything you need for a very special week.

Torre di San Gimignano is a very special place to stay. Views to die for, breathtaking (both physically and visually - 180 stairs work off all the fantastic food and wine!) An unforgettable experience.

While you're there eat lots of ice-cream (Gelateria di Piazza - best in world!); Drink the local wine!; Try all the restaurants (in particular Ristorante Dorando' - not cheap but 10/10); Buy a leather handbag or two (Le Torri); Music festival week while we were there and evening entertainment with violinists and puppetry was great.

Highly recommend and we want to go back soon!
