There is no need to introduce San Gimignano: it is one of Italy’s most beautiful villages and without doubt one of the most renowned tourist destinations of the province of Siena. From Siena you reach it easily in about 30 kilometers in northern direction passing the Elsa valley and Poggibonsi. San Gimignano’s towers still symbolize the noble past of the little town, when each tower represented the political and financial power of the family that inhabited it. Today many of the towers do not exist anymore or have been lowered, but the silhouette of the village is still unmistakable. Within the city walls you can admire beautiful palaces and you shouldn’t miss the fortress, the cathedral and the churches San Francesco and San’t Agostino. The best way to visit San Gimignano is on foot, entering from one of the ancient city gates to stroll through the paved streets in search of treasures.
