This authentic medieval tower is located in the heart of the historic centre of San Gimignano. It exceeds 40 meters in height and still retains its imposing appearance dating back to the XII Century. A careful restoration has turned the tower into an habitable accommodation and today it opens its doors to all history lovers and one-in-a-lifetime experience passionate. The "tower house" is rented in exclusive. The guests ''live vertically'' on 11 different floors (including the terrace) connected by an iron staircase with a handrail for a total of 143 steps. The internal space of the tower is still the original one (approx. 12 sqm per floor). The staircase crosses all levels (there are no passage-way doors) and it goes up to the wonderful panoramic terrace on the top floor equipped with table and chairs: from here you can enjoy a breathtaking 360° view of San Gimignano. There is no air conditioning, however few fans are supplied during the summer months and the big stone walls help to keep a pleasant temperature inside. The guests can use two kitchenettes equipped for cooking, one located on the 1st floor and the other one just below the terrace, designed to dine directly on the rooftop. Due to its peculiarity, the accommodation may not be suitable for stays with children under 12. Heating is working regularly in winter.
