San Gimignano - in Tuscany - this is one of the many fantastic towns in Tuscany- there are so many of them - Pisa, Siena, Lucca, Firenze!
This town used to have lots more towers than it does now but the horizon is still amazing when you first come across it.
The towers! The story goes that all the rich people living in San Gimingnano started building taller and taller towers to out-do their neighbours - at one point there were something like 70 of them - however, only about 14 remain!
