Map - Monastero di San Girolamo
More Information

If travelling by bus from Poggibonsi get off at the Porta San Matteo station which is a 10 minute walk from the monastery. A local bus also works this route.

No cars are allowed in San Gimignano and parking is outside the walls.

On arrival at the monastery ring the 'monastery' bell and not the 'foresteria' bell as this is unanswered.
Staying in San Gimignano is like staying on a medieval film set as many movies are filmed here - Tea With Mussolini and Brother Son and Sister Moon among them.

The artworks in the local churches date back to medieval times and the famous towers which dominate the San Gimignano skyline, just beg to be climbed.

September to December is truffle hunting season, and excursions can be arranged at the local tourist office.

Museums, galleries and gift shops are scattered all along the side streets but an award winning gelato shop has the longest queue in town.
Monastero di San Girolamo
San Gimignano

The monastery guest house is managed by sisters of the Benedettine Vallumbrosan Order, a closed community of nuns who are dedicated to work, prayer and offering hospitality. The convent environment is warm and inviting and travellers and pilgrims are welcomed with gracious hospitality.

The monastery's guest house is open to to all travellers wishing to spend a few days in SanGimignano, combining cultural activities with a peaceful stay in comfortable and quiet surroundings. The facilities of the guest house are simple but adequate and the whole complex sparkles with cleaniness. Guest rooms for up to 5 people are available. All guest rooms have en suite bathrooms.A light breakfast is 3 euro extra. 

The location, a few minutes walk from the heart of this enchanting little hill town is priceless. Even more so after the last tour bus departs at 3 pm and the locals venture out on to the streets.

Guests can come and go as they please and there is no curfew. Many of the guest rooms have views over the Tuscan hills.The San Girolamo guest house is a good choice for budget travellers looking for clean, inexpensive, safe and well located accommodation in this lovely walled town.

The 14th century Church of San Jacobo is adjacent to the convent and is well worth visiting, not only for spiritual reasons, but also for the frescoes and artworks inside. The sisters are the keepers of the keys to the church.
