The Guest House Nomipesciolini Tower is tapestry of history as is the whole town of San Gimignano. This tower-house dates back to the 13th century, but in the 8th century it was once the palace of King Desiderius (the Lombard Kingdom’s final ruler). An Etruscan tomb was also found in what is now the garden of tower-house, which is located in the entryway of the guest house.
