"Spectacular Sunrise" San Gimignano Things to Do Tip by Jmill42

San Gimignano Things to Do: 207 reviews and 430 photos


On my trip, I rarely was up early enough to see any sunrises. But, I happened to see one my first day in San Gimignano, and because it was so wonderful, I did it every day I was there. To see the rolling hills light up slowly, as I enjoyed a hot cappucino in the chilly morning air, was hands down my most vivid memory.

Directions: My suggestion is to find the Punto Panoramico just off the piazza with the well. It provides a magnificent view of the countryside and sunrise.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
