San Gimignano General: 56 reviews and 87 photos
Favorite thing: The city of beautiful towers is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Tuscany. Its stunning skyline bristles with tall towers dating from the 13th century: 14 of the original 76 have survived. These windowless towers were built to serve both as private fortress and symbols of their owners' wealth.
