San Gimignano Things to Do: 207 reviews and 430 photos

by micas_pt

Wondering around San Gimignano and trying to escape from crowds we went into the less visited streets, where we came across the “true” San Gimignano inhabitants. Houses are not as well kept as the ones you see on the main streets, but when looking at them you get a sense of real life there, unlike the others (some of them are “too perfect”). Clothes hanging to dry on the windows, cats lazying on the shadow, ladies at the windows or backyards on their daily life. Very interesting to discover and enjoy, this was our favourite part of San Gimignano.
