Popular accommodations in San Gimignano
With an enviable position atop a hill in the Tuscan countryside, the medieval walled city of San Gimignano is a scenic delight and has one of the highest proportions of surviving towers of anywhere in Italy. Surrounded by walls on three sides, the historic buildings which line the streets, a mix of Gothic and Romanesque architecture, make San Gimignano a pure pleasure to walk around. Despite a large number of day visitors from nearby Florence swelling the number of people present in the town, the actual population of San Gimignano is fairly small. By renting a holiday apartment in San Gimignano from 9flats, you will feel more like a local than a holidaymaker as the apartments are mainly located in residential areas. This is similar in a way to couchsurfing in San Gimignano but the 9flats experience is much more comfortable with a far greater degree of personal space.
Historic Holiday Apartments in San Gimignano
Despite being classed as a city, San Gimignano is compact in size and is very easy to get around. This makes it a highly popular destination for day trips from the cities of Florence and Siena which are in close proximity. With no traffic allowed inside the city walls, San Gimignano enjoys a fairly peaceful atmosphere, albeit one which is often interspersed with the chatter of thousands of day-trippers. The city is most famous for its preservation of many towers, fourteen in total, which have managed to survive wars and catastrophes and remain standing proudly today. The presence of these towers, in addition to a number of beautifully preserved churches, led to the centre of San Gimignano being granted World Heritage status in 1990. 9flats has many lovely apartments in San Gimignano itself and a number in nearby towns such as holiday apartments in Colle di Val d’Elsa. As already mentioned, many people visit San Gimignano on day trips to Florence, so by renting a holiday apartment in Florence you can still enjoy the delights of this picturesque walled city.
Holiday Accommodation in San Gimignano by Night
San Gimignano takes on a completely different persona by night. When the sun goes down and the scores of day-trippers have departed, the old town becomes beautifully quiet and the historic buildings take on an almost serene quality. It can often feel like the entire city is yours and yours alone. Visiting here just for the day robs you of this unique atmosphere, so by renting a holiday apartment in San Gimignano from 9flats, you are giving yourself the opportunity of experiencing something that scores of day-trippers miss out on.
