Loving Life in San Gimignano
I was thoroughly enthralled by both this hotel and San Gimignano. I want to go there repeatedly! It's possible to drive into the Piazza for drop off of luggage and then go to Parking Area 2 for the closest parking. This was a marvelous property right in the center of everything. Be sure to ask for a room that opens on the terrace.
