  • Are you within walking distance to San Gimignano or are transportation options available. We will be arriving by train from Poggobonsi.
    Good morning, Our B&B is 2,8 km from San Gimignano (30 minutes by foot). Our suggestions is to rent a car or a scooter because in the night there is no light on the road and taxis are so expensive Wish you to have a nice day
