Silvana Freddi / Podere Cunina purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Silvana Freddi / Podere Cunina chose San Gimignano

Romantic, bright, intimate and comfortable ATTICO DUOMO is located in the historic heart of San Gimignano (Piazza Duomo) overlooking the Collegiata church, the ancient Town Hall and the most beautiful towers of the town. It's located in the XII century medieval Useppi-Chigi Palace, alongside the Leggieri Theatre. In the 'Attico Duomo' you can find tranquillity and privacy.

What makes this apartment unique

From every window a different panorama can be admired, with picturesque patches of the Sienese and Florentine countryside cultivated with vines and sunflowers. Of Etruscan origin, it is a real artistic gem. The historic centre is a site which is protected by UNESCO and presents intact the Tuscan 12th and 13th centuries, packed with beautiful palaces, with important sculptures and frescoes. It is almost unreal: we know that it is all authentic, even if it appears to be like a perfect reconstruction.

The city is an UNESCO world heritage site and rightly so, since when you walk the streets it seems hard to believe that the Medieval era is no longer alive. The tall towers, the monumental palazzos, the narrow streets and small bottegas work together to create an unforgettable souvenir of memories.From a vacation accommodation based in or around San Gimignano there are many directions you can travel in Tuscany that will enrich your itinerary with either beauty, history or natural phenomenons. Some of which are reachable by public transport - easy one stop rides, which you can do on your own, while others require a car if you want to make it there and back again in a day.

Here is our list of place to consider when on vacation in Tuscany and based in (or close to San Gimignano).The Three Big Stops

These three options practically need no introduction - Pisa, Siena and Florence are pillars of beauty and historical importance in Tuscany. We include them only because it would be remiss to skip over them, however our intent with this article is to give you some options that are “outside of the box”.

Pisa Driving Time: 1 hour 30 min

This is furtherest away from the small town however, not so far that it is impossible in a day trip, especially since Pisa (once you have bought your tickets in advance online) can easily be visited and appreciated in less than a day. The Leaning Tower needs no introduction, however the other monuments in the Square of Miracles are less famous..

Warm, spacious and so comfortable. It was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived by train to Poggibonsi where Silvana had made arrangements for my sister and I to be driven to San Gimignano. Our two bedroom apartment was fabulous. Attico Duomo is right in the heart of San Gimignano. Each morning we opened our wooden shutters and were looking right at Collegiata’s Church. We stayed nine nights in this dream. When your adventure takes you to Tuscany please give yourself a treat of a lifetime and stay at Attico Duomo, the XII century medical palace.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in the middle of San Gimignano. Seamless interaction with the property owner. The free parking is a huge plus. I would stay at this location again and recommend it to my friends.

This was our second time staying at the Attico Duomo apartment. We chose to return because the apartment is lovely, quiet and well appointed. It is located in the historic center of San Gimignano overlooking one of the major piazzas. Having a designated parking space just outside the city walls is invaluable, and on top of that there is a washing machine in the apartment so that you can catch up on your laundry. Be prepared for the 59 steps to the apartment, but it is well worth the climb to be able to live like a local while you stay in one of the most charming hill towns in Tuscany. The property owners are prompt with their responses and very helpful regarding the booking of the apartment. The keyholder speaks very little English, buy we managed to communicate well enough to get comfortably settled in. Thank you Silvana and Piergiorgio for another wonderful stay in your lovely apartment!

This is an amazing apartment. From the location - perfect; to the amenities - everything you might need ; to the hosts and check in - complete. Location was unbelievable across from the duomo on the main piazza looking down from the 3 rd floor . Listening to the church bells was magical. Most amazing was the use of the free parking area behind Fernanda's house.

We truly enjoyed San G and staying this wonderful town and apartment

If you are staying in San G somewhere besides this apartment you are probably in the wrong place and somewhere not nearly as wonderful.

We will return next year and would stay no where else

Thank you Silvana

Silvania did a fantastic job preparing us for our visit and was a gracious hostess throughout. We were met by the caretakers who were charming and helpful. It is a spacious apartment with an amazing view of the main square. It has every thing you could need. We attended the cooking class and met the entire beautiful family. I could not have imagined a better experience. Yes, there are stairs, but how else are you going to access a Medieval tower?

A week in San gimignano

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect. Great location, furnishing where amazing and the help and assistance from the owner was awesome. She went out of her way to help with guidance as we didn't know the area.

I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Only one point to anyone who has problems with stairs. It is on the third floor and there are plenty so you have to be prepared. It was hard work for my Mother who we took with us.
