San Gimignano is a small town in Tuscany, which is quite popular with tourists. By the way, when we hear the phrase "popular with tourists", we come to this place in the morning. This time we were in the old town at 8:30 am and walked alone for about an hour. At 9:30 am the streets were already crowded with tourists.

The town became famous due to family defensive towers built in the XI-XIII centuries. This is not a unique phenomenon for Italy - for example, two similar towers are symbols of Bologna. Currently San Gimignano has 14 towers. Some of them have a height of 50 meters and you can climb to the top.

While reaching the old town, don't hurry to go inside. There's a nice photo point just several hundred meters from the parking place (look at the map below).
