San Gimignano

The city of towers

San Gimignano is a small medieval village within the Province of Siena which offers a rich past and fascinating architecture. The village of San Gimignano is located about halfway between Florence and Siena, respectively at about 60 and 45 km from each and is easily reached by car and bus.

The city was built atop a hill about 300 meters high and thus enjoys a wonderful view of the entire Elsa Valley that surrounds it. The hill has been inhabited since the Etruscan and Hellenistic period, probably due to is dominant position that allowed a careful watch of the valley below. 

Despite the passing of the centuries, San Gimignano managed to preserve its Medieval architecture and its charm and today is with a doubt one of Tuscany's greatest small treasures. The "city of the beautiful towers", as it is often called, has been a recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990.
