Medieval Manhattan

The Tuscan hilltop town of San Gimignano and its world-famous towers rises like a “Medieval Manhattan” from the Val D’Elsa. At its height in the 13th and 14th Century the town boasted over 70 towers, now only 15 remain:

    Beautiful shot of a wonderful town- I really enjoyed staying in San gimignano for a week last summer- the city, the architecture and surroundings and not to forget this wonderful Ice cream 😉

      Thanks Mary….we only visited for the day, but it was certainly one of the highlights of our trip to Tuscany a few weeks ago……and yes the ice cream was delicious 😊

        One day is too short 😉 You couldn’t even try yourself through all those wonderful ice-cream flavors 😉
        Tuscany is wonderful- I especially like siena, which is even more beautiful (early in the mornings esp. during palio) on some days 🙂
