San Gimignano – one of Tuscany’s great gems.

This hillside town, high above the valley below, encircled by century old walls, a skyline of medieval towers, harkens back to the 12th. century.

Here is a great overview of this Tuscan gem.

The Duomo di San Gimignano – a 12th-century church with frescoes by Ghirlandaio in its Santa Fina Chapel, a place to treasure and be in awe of – a testimony of pure craftsmanship, engineering ingenuity and beauty.

You look, you wonder, you ponder – asking yourself, how did they do it back then?

San Gimignano – a magical spot to relax, go shopping, discover glorious Tuscan food, explore its surrounding countryside and if you explore at night it becomes even more magical.
