San Gimignano Bell Tower, San Gimignano

Built by the city's powerful patrician families in the age of feudalism, San Gimignano Bell Tower is a reminder of a once-ubiquitous architectural trend. Admire at the 14 different towers still in existence, the tallest of which stands 54 m (177 ft) high. At one point, 72 of these study stone structures accentuated the town's skyline. Climb more than 250 steps to the top of the Torre Grossa for views of the other towers and the Tuscan countryside.

  • think I could have lived in the middle ages, when a large fortress was built in stone with towers and small openings in the walls in order to monitor and protect (launching arrows or fireballs). so, there you are entering in the 21 century and at the same time in medieval centuries. In addition the surroundings of the town is full d attractions to be enjoyed: architecture, cuisine, shopping, and beautiful scenery.
