San Giovanni d'Asso is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Siena in the Italian region Tuscany, located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) southeast of Florence and about 30 kilometres (19 mi) southeast of Siena in the area known as the Crete Senesi.
The hamlet is overlooked by large Castle, now home to a large White truffle museum, and there is a festival celebrating the rare and fragrant tuber each year. Also interesting in the historical centre are the churches of San Giovanni Battista (pieve) and San Pietro in Villore, both of medieval origin.
