Think a quaint medieval town with towering buildings dominating its skyline, almost like a setting from a storybook come alive – that’s what San Gimignano is like. Dotted with ancient towers is this lovely little Italian hill town in the Siena province of Tuscany. It is a walled village, most famous for its 14 impressive medieval towers that are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Just about 40 km (25 miles) from both Florence and Siena, the town looks like an ancient renaissance painting paused in time. Hordes of enthusiastic travellers come to the city to experience its old-world charm and leave feeling wholly satisfied. Here are some the best Vrbo vacation rentals that capture the very beauty of San Gimignano, Italy and will enhance your Italian getaway, so get booking.

1. Romantic accommodation ideal for couples (from USD 133)

Pick this quintessential Italian apartment and add a dash of romance to your getaway. You’ll be treated with a complimentary bottle of Tuscan wine upon arrival and a tour of the property by the hosts. Sitting on the ground floor of the building, you’ll not only be able to enjoy a private garden but also befriend a turtle who calls the garden his home and the beautiful flowers that grow there. Inside, the apartment has been beautifully done up, ensuring that it makes for a great space for retreat after a long day of activities. Ideally meant for two, but the place can also accommodate a third young one. It is about 100 meters (330 feet) from the city’s historic districts such as Piazza della Cisterna and Piazza Duomo. Several art galleries, shops, museums, and markets are also within walking distance.

Amenities & Room:
The kitchen is well equipped to cook light meals for 5
the beds were comfortable and the space was plenty for two couples
Great apartment for up to 4 people
However the reasons for giving the apartment a 3 5 are: the kitchen had plenty of pots and pans but few usable dishes
but it should be in the posting All in all
Cleanliness:
The apartment was clean and quiet
The two bedrooms are very similar to each other in size and furnishings which is particularly helpful when two couples are traveling together as there is no "master bedroom" per se
Maar wij waren toch niet veel in het huisje
Summers can get hot in Tuscany and the shutters are working well to keep the apartment cool
Host:
Everyone was super helpful and we loved it
The owners were very nice people helpful and accommodating
We of course understood the cost
Communication was first class and we were made to feel very welcome
The owner greeted us nicely and efficiently upon our arrival and made sure we found free street parking for our car while staying there
Location:
that are 5 min away by foot
Location is great for exploring San Gimignano but also as a base for exploring Tuscany as a whole Siena was only a 35 minute drive away Overall a very good place to stay
The place was comfortable and clean and an easy walk to everything from tourist sites to food shops
We were told on arrival we had to park in the 10min walk away public lot for 10 Euro which turned out to be 13 Euro
not a bad stay for one night but not for more than two days

10. Located in the heart of the historic district

located in the heart of the historic district
Source: www.vrbo.com

Great for a family of five, this place is a fantastic option for those who want to stay close to the historic sights of the city. It has been furnished in a slightly distressed manner to give it the “rustic” feel that San Gimignano resonates with. However, no aspect of comfort and convenience has been overlooked. You can look out the window and see crowds of happy people exploring their way through the town, or step out and leave yourself to be swept away by the mystique that abounds the airs. Although, do note that the apartment is on the second floor of the building and can only be accessed via stairs.
