San Gimignano, Tuscany's most easily recognizable hill town, resembles an opera — larger than life and full of flair. Casa Carmen, mere steps from the main piazza, embodies this operatic theme.

Set at the base of one of San Gimignano's medieval towers, Casa Carmen is abundantly spacious for two, or for one couple with two children in tow. Upon entering the main living area, one is nobly greeted by three, large, arched and soundproofed windows, high ceilings, original wood beams, period antiques and an oversized family crest adorning one wall.

The use of air conditioning, present in the bedrooms is included in the price. The decor is pleasantly simple and functional and features a compact galley kitchen and a handy, combination modern washer/dryer unit in the bathroom.

Traditionally, Italians begin the day with a cappuccino (or espresso), a warm brioche and freshly squeezed orange juice. Conveniently to the right of your building are two cafes lining the main square. On the opposite side of the piazza is Gelateria Dondoli renown for its homemade ice cream. This delicious attraction is easily spotted by daytime lines outside its door. Enjoy it unhurriedly on an after dinner stroll when all the day trippers are gone and the town is yours.

In San Gimignano even basic shopping makes for great entertainment. Every Thursday morning, the main square becomes a thriving outdoor market filled with stalls pitching everything from apparel to produce to locally made delicacies. Beyond the square, dozens of artisan boutiques, restaurants, wine shops, gourmet grocers and a handful of interesting art galleries and museums colorfully compete for your attention.

San Gimignano's historic center is a restricted traffic zone. While a car is not necessary for those adept at public transit, guests renting an auto may drive to the front door to drop or pick up luggage. The closest paid parking lot is outside the town's medieval walls — approximately a third of a mile walk from Casa Carmen.

San Gimignano has a bus depot with service to Siena and the neighboring towns of Poggibonsi or Certaldo, both 15 minutes away with train stations offering frequent service into Florence. For those looking for a countryside immersion blending scenic drives with wineries visits and stops at medieval villages not accessible by public transit, a car is recommended. By car, Siena is 35 minutes away; Volterra, known for all things alabaster: 40; Florence, the wineries of Radda in Chianti or Greve in Chianti: 45; Pisa or Montecatini Terme: 60; Lucca, Arezzo or Cécina's sandy Tuscan beaches: 80; Cortona or Montepulciano: 90; Assisi: 2 hours; Cinque Terre: 2.5 hours.

A tourist tax collected by the town is paid separately on the first five nights. Children under age 12 are exempt.
