Create an itinerary including San Gimignano Bell Tower
Built by the city's powerful patrician families in the age of feudalism, San Gimignano Bell Tower is a reminder of a once-ubiquitous architectural trend. Admire at the 14 different towers still in existence, the tallest of which stands 54 m (177 ft) high. At one point, 72 of these study stone structures accentuated the town's skyline. Climb more than 250 steps to the top of the Torre Grossa for views of the other towers and the Tuscan countryside. Make San Gimignano Bell Tower part of your personalized San Gimignano itinerary using our San Gimignano trip builder site.

  • A really MUST!! This is the tallest tower in San Gimignano... so you can imagine how beautiful is the view... On top of it... it is not as difficult as one may think... A MUST!!!
  • Incredible place. The tallest tower (54m) in San Gimignano. There is a museum, too. It's worth to go on the top.
