San Gimignano

4.4

Town of Fine Towers

A historical gem in the heart of Tuscany, San Gimignano is known as the Town of Fine Towers for its jutting skyline of high city walls. As one of the area's most well-preserved cities of the Middle Ages, San Gimignano features impressive Romanesque and Gothic architecture in its historic city center, a World Heritage Site. The narrow stone alleyways with original storefronts, picturesque plazas, and regal hilltop location add to the city's enchanting, medieval feel. Venture into the surrounding countryside to witness the production of one of Italy's white wines, Vernaccia di San Gimignano. San Gimignano is in Province of Siena.
