ADVICE

Being very close to Borgo al Cerro, we advise guests to avoid the busiest times of day which, especially between April and October, can make it hard to visit the town in peace, which it richly deserves. The atmosphere at night is particularly special. A visit to San Gimignano combines very well with a visit to Colle di Val d’Elsa and the surrounding area.

FINE FOOD AND WINE

Zafferano in Tuscany

Especially during high season, we suggest that you don’t stay to eat in the town itself; it is better to eat in Colle di Val d'Elsa or in neighbouring parts (the countryside); they are usually less expensive and less crowded. Saffron has been cultivated in San Gimignano since the middle ages.


  • Wines: Vernaccia di San Gimignano (white).
