Where we are

A Unesco World Heritage Site since 1990, San Gimignano has preserved most of its buildings and monuments while maintaining a typically medieval architecture. Walking in the squares and through the narrow alleys will make you feel like coming back in the 12th Century

How to get to San Gimignano

Loading/Unloading luggage

Torre Salvucci Maggiore is located within the Medieval Historic Center of San Gimignano, in Piazza Delle Erbe 20, at the corner of Piazza Duomo. Access is allowed with a special permit (for loading and unloading luggage) which will be issued at the time of booking. The max stop is 20 minutes; after that the car must be parked outside the walls.

The paid parking lots are located in close proximity and connected to the historic centre with a shuttle bus service. Tickets can be purchased on board and the closest stop to Torre Salvucci is ''Piazza Duomo''.
