The medieval town of San Gimignano is situated on a ridge of a hill in the gentle Tuscan landscape, about an hour’s drive from Siena and Florence.
The town is first and foremost known for its many towers but the whole historic centre is an exceptionally well-preserved town from the middle ages.
San Gimignano once had around 70 tower houses. Only 14 have survived and they have aged beautifully.
The historic center is on the list of World Heritage Sites.
