San Gimignano or Greve/Montefioralle

Jump to last reply

Two friends and I are going to Florence in early May. We are taking a day trip to Siena and also a small group wine tour to Montalcino. We are thinking about a third day trip that is a little shorter and are considering either San Gimignano or Greve with a walk (or bus) up to Montefioralle. Both look great, but we are concerned about crowds in San Gimignano--it doesn't sound fun if there are too many people to be able to appreciate the views and scenery, and we don't just want to visit a bunch of cheesy souvenir stores. We are not renting a car and so will be taking the bus. It does look like the buses back to Florence run late, so we could arrive in the early to mid afternoon and leave around 9pm or so.

Any thoughts on the crowds in S.G. in early May and the relative merits of those two destinations?
