The castle is not really present anymore but the area is very quite as less people end up there. Worth it for a little break

San Gimignano is full of great medeival buildings and luckily also many great view points from where they can be admired. Rocca Montestaffoli is one of these spots. Unlike the towers the view here is free of charge.

The place is nice but not remarkable but the tower is. You can climb the tower for free and get an amazing view of the town and surrounding Tuscany. This is only a short way from the main street.

Great views of the rooftops and medieval towers of San Gimignano - and it's free! Walk into the fortress ruin and find the tower in the corner. It's 20 narrow, steep steps but worth the climb.

You don't need long to wander around this ruin of a fort, but its worth a wander and to see the great views form the walls of the spectacular countryside.

You can find one of the most beautiful view over Tuscany here on the highest point in San Gimignano. We drank a bottle of Chianti Clasico under one olive tree. It is absolutely a must see in San Gimignano!
