It is possible to arrive by car until the entrance door of the palace (max stop 20 minutes). You will be sent a map of the historic centre with the route to follow. The car can then be parked outside the town walls (less than 10 minutes by walk).
WHERE CAN I PARK?
The 4 paid parking lots are located in the immediate vicinity just outside the walls: among these the parking lot n.1 ''Giubileo'' in Via Lavagnini is the cheapest one (Euro 6.00/day). All municipal car parks provide the city-bus shuttle service that goes all the way into the historic centre. Tickets can be purchased on board and the closest stop to the apartment is ''Piazza Duomo''. On bank holidays, the shuttle bus does not run to the centre but stops in front of the walls (you can then continue on foot in 7/8 minutes). Alternatively, you can also find free parking spaces all along Via Don. E. Castaldi street (primary school area). From here the apartment is a 10-12 minutes walk following the signs for the historic centre. If you are arriving in San Gimignano by bus from Florence or Siena, get off in front of ''Porta San Giovanni'' (south entrance). The nearest railway station is in Poggibonsi (12 km). If you wish to rent a scooter or a mountain bike during your stay, you find the ''Bruno Bellini'' car rental just outside the walls.
