San Gimignano Cathedral Entry Ticket

2. San Gimignano Cathedral Entry Ticket

Pre-book your entry ticket and audio guide to the Cathedral of San Gimignano, one of the city’s most important monuments. The walls of the church are entirely lined with frescoes that recount stories of the New and Old Testaments painted by artists of the 14th-century Sienese school. Discover the wonders of the San Gimignano Cathedral immediately upon entering. Admire the interior of the church, characterized by 14 classical Tuscan stone columns, 10 of which are round and the other four octagonal. The cycle of frescoes of the New Testament on the church’s right wall is a masterpiece by Lippo and Federico Memmi. On the left wall, spot the Stories of the Old Testament, painted in 1367 by Bartolo di Fredi. The interior also presents polychrome decorations typical of medieval churches, such as the unique painted-blue cross vault and the intrados of the arches separating the nave from the aisles decorated with a striped motif typical of the Tuscan taste. The cathedral also holds a precious Renaissance jewel, the Chapel of Santa Fina, on which three famous Florentine artists worked: an architect, Giuliano da Maiano; a sculptor, Benedetto da Maiano; and a painter, Domenico Ghirlandaio. This piece is dedicated to San Gimignano’s best-loved saint.

What people are saying about San Gimignano

We had a great time on this tour with 3 couples. Our tour guide, Francesco, was fun and knowledgeable about the area. We stopped in San Gimignano for a quick coffee, shopping, and beautiful views. The first winery was a larger winery and was very generous with their pours. The second winery was a small vineyard and olive tree farm where we enjoyed wine and lunch with their cute farm dog. We were able to purchase wine from both wineries to ship back home (they definitely sold it, but happy to support their wineries). A great way to get out of Florence for the day and still be back in town by 3.

This tour was worth every penny! My fiancé and I took a private tour with Stefano; he was prompt, knowledgeable, and made us very comfortable from the start! We toured Sam Gimignano for about an hour and a half before visiting two wineries. The “light lunch” described was delicious and not light at all! We had a three course lunch with a wine tasting to accompany it at a large winery, and small bites with a tasting at a smaller family owned winery. Of course, both wineries and the scenery were beautiful. We would take this tour over and over if we could!

A wonderful 6 hrs with Simona as our driver and guide. Loved San Gimignano. Don’t miss it! The Chianti Hills were just stunning. Harvest nearly ready and both the more commercial winery and the family run small one were great. Just don’t eat breakfast first !

Our guide Daniele was excellent. The tour was so well organized. We visited two different wineries with totally different feels. What a great experience. A worthwhile tour!!

A film on San Gimignano was shown telling the great moments of the city. Interesting to start a stay in this place and have another look at the landscapes.
