The Tuscany region

Tuscany (Italian: Toscana) is a region in Italy. It has an area of 22,990 km² and a population of about 3.6 million inhabitants. The regional capital is Florence.

Tuscany is known for its landscapes and its artistic legacy. Six Tuscan localities have been UNESCO protected sites: the historical centre of Florence (1982), the historical centre of Siena (1995), the square of the Cathedral of Pisa (1987), the historical centre of San Gimignano (1990), the historical centre of Pienza (1996) and the Val d'Orcia (2004).

San Gimignano

The city of San Gimignano took its name from the saint, then bishop of Modena, who helped the tuscan village to fight against the barbarians. The origins of the town date back to the Roman period, when the consul Silvio was forced to leave Roma with his followers. Because of this, the town of San Gimignano was anciently known as Silvia. Between XIII and XIV century, San Gimignano was known as a very important town, for its commercial activity as well as for its poetry, architecture and the arts in general.

The beautiful medieval village of San Gimignano is well known all over the world as one of Tuscany's treasures. It is the only example of a medieval city which has preserved through the centuries many of its ancient and beautiful towers. San Gimignano can always amaze the visitor with its charm, beauty and the unique atmosphere of its historical centre, which is almost intact. The ancient walls embrace the built-up area, with its square, streets and alleys that offer magical glimpses and unforgettable corners. Set on the top of a hill, San Gimignano dominates the surrounding Tuscan countryside.

San Gimignano is 40 km from Florence, 65 km from Pisa, 30 km from Siena, 28 km from the etruscan Volterra, only a few minutes from Chianti and one hour from the sea. Thanks to its central position in Tuscany, San Gimignano offers its guest the opportunity to spend a relaxing holiday in the town, or to go for a trip in the surrounding area. It is not only a peaceful and ancient place to stay, but also a perfect starting point to visit all major places in Tuscany: this makes San Gimignano one of the best places to spend a holiday.

Very Good

“Great Tuscan apartment... but not for summer heat.”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2012

My husband and I had originally hoped to stay in Il Duca for 2 months, but because of the heat in Tuscany this summer, we had to seek other accommodations with air conditioning. Pros: The apartment is quaint with nice views. Fabio was very helpful, but could do nothing to help the heat. Ample dishes and glassware Beds were comfrotable Authentic Tuscan building Not suitable for Americans in the summer used to air conditioning Cons: It got loud with motorbikes below at night. Birds WILL wake you up at 5:00 a.m. Top floor walk up with slick steps. Scratchy sheets and towels Short showers; tiny hot water heater. The location in town was great, but in terms of traveling elsewhere in Tuscany it was quite inconvenient. I would recommend staying in Siena and taking a day trip to San Gimignano or staying at the local Hotel Leon Bianco for a night or two instead.
