... view of the medieval Pennabilli village from there, perched high on a hill across the valley. Back into town for something to eat to find that they were having their local markets which apparently go for two days. Betsy found some shoes - Nike - that she just had to have - seemed like a good deal to. This was after her being in hysterics from me trying to graphically explain to the owner that she wanted to try a ...
... view of San Gimignano and the surrounding countryside. Working entirely in Italian and my sad Spitalian, we managed to learn that the woman who had come to get us was not in fact a taxista, but rather a member of the agriturismo's staff, the one who usually cooks breakfast. The rest of the staff was out for the day (to what we think was a wedding dinner?), but she checked us in, very kindly gave us a cold bottle of sparkling water, and showed us the room and ...
... Miniato was denounced as a Christian, was beheaded, picked up his head, and walked up to the top of the hill where the church would later be founded in his honor. The view from the top of the hill was even better, and I took a lot of great pictures. I didn't want to leave. It was such a fantastic view - all I could do was sit there and wish everything was this peaceful and simple.
We found dinner at a small family owned restaurant nearby. It was delicious! We split a ...
... works of art that I have recognized from art and history books all my life. There are miles of corridors clogged with tour groups looking up at Florentine sculptures in all their dangling glory. I got an audio tour headset (actually a wand or club you hold to your ear) for myself and my girls. The audio tour was a joke, really. I used the audio tours in the Smithsonian and was impressed with what they had done. You walk up to a painting and listen to the narrator ...
... with the door to the balcony open tonight. Although the majority of the tourists leave by around 8.00pm the town is still busy. Those staying in the town for the evening are interspersed with locals taking an evening stroll. It's not quite as tranquil as I thought it would be. The service in the restaurant I choose because it has wild boar on the menu, is perfunctory, and without warmth, but the food is good. Wild boar is tasty. Or at least I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel L'Antico Pozzo San Gimignano
Loved Antico Pozzo
Recently enjoyed a whirlwind trip of Europe, ending with a couple of days at San Gimignano. A great place to end the trip, especially Hotel L'Antio Pozzo. Newly refurbished and nicely done. Many of current amenities we're used to, but keeping the old charm of San Gimi. Would definitely stay there again.
Loved Antico Pozzo
When our daughter got married in bellagio in April of 2004 we rented all of the apartments at the Antico Pozzo for our friends. These are new, very nice apartments. There is no view but a very comfortable apartment for a very reasonable price.They also have a great restaurant attached to the apartments with good food also at reasonable prices. I would highly recommend Antico Pozzo
A Bit of Medieval Heaven
We spent four nights at the L'Antico Pozzo in March,'04 and loved every minute. You are truly stepping back a few centuries. We used San Gimignano as our base to visit all of Tuscany with the exception of Florence, where we later spent six days. What a wonderful hotel! Our room was spacious and beautiful, right off a lovely courtyard. The breakfasts were superb and the staff couldn't have been more accomodating. We parked our car at an indoor garage in a space held by the hotel, only a five minute walk away. I highly recommend staying in San Gimignano and hope we will be able to return to L'Antico Pozzo. Be sure you have good, solid, comfortable walking shoes!
Our place in San Gimi!
This is a wonderful little gem of a hotel. We have stayed here twice in the past two years and we just love the town (San Gimi is wonderful), the service and the rooms. We get a junior suite -- I suggest you do the same. Rooms 12 and 14 are both wonderful. The regular rooms are smaller and not as cute. Enjoy!
Comfort with Class in San Gimignano
A stay at this perfectly located, beautifully restored medieval palace is a must when visiting this incredible treasure of a town. The hotel is furnished in the best of taste: unfussy and elegant and the staff is incredibly informed....they even helped us locate a church where we could be married!! Unforgettable!
We stayed here for two nights, which was one night too long! San Gimignano is a tourist magnet, which can be enjoyed in an afternoon or evening. Our room initally was very pretty but only had a view of a fire-escape and brick wall to replace the beautiful Tuscan landscape!
This is a FABULOUS hotel. The rooms were wonderful and ours looked over the rooftops of this small town!!!! There was a good variety of food offered at breakfast and the service was excellent!!!! Upon arriving at breakfast, the staff person would inquire if we wanted coffee, tea or hot chocolate!!! Then we would help ourselves to the rest of the breakfast and sit outside in a lovely area. What we really appreciated about this hotel was the very fine service we received from desk staff.
Loved the L'Antico Pozzo
We stayed at the L'Antico Pozzo in both 2001 and 2002. Originally, we had made reservations ouside of San Gimignano, but really wanted to be inside the city walls. After consulting Frommers, we moved to the L'Antico Pozzo which was less expensive than where we were staying.Room #14 was just incredible. Windows overlooking the street, canopied bed, and a large bathroom. While it was a little noisy in the mornings (street and breakfast room noise), we would definitely go back. Highlights: Nights in San Gimignano. Very quiet and romantic. Introduced to a great local wine Chianti Colle Senesi by the night manager.Small Issues: Night manager did not know how to connect to Internet. Air conditioning sometimes went off at night.
Wonderful Tuscan Hotel!
The Hotel L'Antico Pozzo is a beautiful hotel and our room was phenomenal (room 14 is well worth the upgrade). The hotel's private patio is nice for re-capping the day's events over a bottle of wine. Their attention to detail enhances its reputation as a place for "lovers of art," and they really take care of their guests with a huge breakfast and air conditioning. However, they DON'T ship wine, so limit your purchases if you visit the local wineries. As for San G, it is a great home base for doing day trips around Tuscany. Francesca at the wine shop across from the hotel knows her stuff and is fun to talk to. And don't overlook the Torture Museum... macabre, but fascinating.
A small gem
Patrizia and the rest of this hard working, caring staff went out of their way to take care of everything we needed in a very polite and professional style. The room was beautiful and the hotel was well located - just like the town. We will be back.
