A historical gem in the heart of Tuscany, San Gimignano is known as the Town of Fine Towers for its jutting skyline of high city walls.
Galleria Gagliardi and Piazza del Campo are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Head to Oibo Re-Design and Silvia Tanganellifor plenty of shopping. Get out of town with these interesting San Gimignano side-trips: Siena (Battistero di San Giovanni, Duomo di Siena, &more). There's more to do: learn about winemaking at Guardastelle Vineyard and shop like a local with La Bottega del Sale di Duccio Nacci photographer.

For traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the San Gimignano trip planner.

Newark, USA to San Gimignano is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of car and flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Newark to San Gimignano due to the time zone difference. In August, plan for daily highs up to °F, and evening lows to °F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Wed) early enough to go by car to Florence.
