Owner description: Walk to the castle on this hilltop park to get a sweeping view of the town's many towers.

This is a lovely park with a ruined tower, if you don't want to pay to go up one of the towers then this is the place for you . The tower is not too high but as the park itself is on high ground then the view is really good. great place to watch the sunset although it can get busy at that time.
Picnic tables were out when we visited so a nice spot to enjoy .

Located a short walk from the Duomo piazza is this extensive ruin. It was a bit of a climb but much of the city was a climb. Through a portal we entered the ruined grounds. There were several viewpoints and a short tower to climb which offered a wonderful outlook. There was not much left of the ruin but it still maintained an imposing position.

The castle is not really present anymore but the area is very quite as less people end up there. Worth it for a little break

San Gimignano is full of great medeival buildings and luckily also many great view points from where they can be admired. Rocca Montestaffoli is one of these spots. Unlike the towers the view here is free of charge.

We walked up here on a cold and icy day after several inches of snow the previous day. It has a magnificent view of the town and the vineyards from the parapet wall and the garden inside the citadel is a relaxing sit in the sun on a cold windy day since it breaks the wind completely.
