Marco Rossi

Ciao! I started traveling around Italy in 2017 and finally I moved here to live, because Italy is the epicenter of art, history and beauty. I will show you Italy from the most interesting sides, will share with you secrets and traditions of this country and will help make your trip unforgettable.

San Gimignano is a strikingly beautiful city in Tuscany, which has taken refuge behind beautifully preserved ramparts with 14 (originally there were 72) towers. It was named after the Bishop of Modena, who is said to have repelled an attack by Attila and his Huns. San Gimignano is spread among cornfields, olive groves and vineyards in a green agricultural area.

Expert Tips

Marco Rossi

Remember ZTL

Downtown San Gimignano is a restricted traffic area, which means you won’t be able to drive through the city walls and you still have to be a fairly advanced driver to get your car through the narrow streets!

Marco Rossi

San Gimignano City Pass

The san Gimignano City Pass will give you admission to the Palazzo Comunale, the City Hall, Torre Grossa, the Archaeological Museum, the Santa Fina Pharmacy, the Raffaele De Grada Modern Art Gallery, the Duomo, the Museum of Sacred Art and the Church of Saint Lawrence for only 16 euros per person.

Marco Rossi

Taste local wine

Taste the Vernaccia wine, which is produced only in the area.

Marco Rossi

Gelateria Dondoli

Located in the central square of Piazza della Cisterna in San Gimignano, Gelateria Dondoli is known throughout the world and is visited by numerous public figures. Thanks to his experience and desire to experiment, Maestro Desire Sergio created original and unusual tastes. His first creations are already famous: Crema di Santa Fina® (cream with saffron and pine nuts), Champelmo® (pink grapefruit and sparkling wine), Dolceamaro® (cream with aromatic herbs), Sorbetto di Vernaccia enrich the already existing huge menu.

Via delle Romite, 13

Restaurant Il Ceppo Toscano was born in San Gimignano, in the spectacular halls of the monastery in 1200. Great cuisine immediately makes you forget where you are, what is outside.. The search for flavors and combinations, amazing and precise culinary combinations, perfect cuisine, wonderful cellar and friendly atmosphere make this place an absolute gem not to be missed for those who visit these great places, with prices maybe a little above average, but finally fully justified.

Amelia Lee

Crystalina, I returned from an 11-day trip in northern Italy after having the kind help of you to plan and build the itinerary. Happily, your recommendations were incredibly accurate and detailed, including parking, recommendations for restaurants and even leading ice cream parlors. We arrived at magical places, don't want to think what would have happened without your planning?! Thank you very much, Crystalina.

Ava Martinez

Crystalina was a pleasure to work with - friendly, kind, and always willing to help. We highly recommend her services for anyone planning a trip to Italy.

Chloe Collins

We purchased a travel itinerary for Tuscany from Crystalina, and it exceeded our expectations. The itinerary was well-planned and accurate, allowing us to have the perfect trip we envisioned. Additionally, Crystalina provided us with an excellent quote for car rental, and we were able to rent a car from Sixt at a much cheaper price compared to other competitors, saving us approximately $200. Highly recommended.
