San Gimignano is also known as the ‘Manhattan of Tuscany’ for the number of towers visible on the skyline. Indeed San Gimignano has the greatest number of remaining medieval towers, making it well worthy of its status as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

A photographer’s delight, walking to the top of this stunning hilltop town, there is a lookout giving great views over the picturesque Tuscan landscape in the surrounds, as well as the best perspective of the towers within San Gimignano.

Surrounding the walled town centre of San Gimignano are lands where the famed Vernaccia white wine is produced. The first wine to have been received the DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) appellation, it is a strong white that pairs well with strong chicken, rabbit, pork and other dishes requiring a robust  flavour.

There is even a museum dedicated to wine! And if that isn’t unique enough for you, perhaps you’d prefer visiting the Museum of Torture also in San Gimignano.

In terms of shopping in San Gimignano, there are many stores selling hand-painted ceramics, leather items such as bags and shoes, as well as some traditional arts and craft items famous in the area.

There are also great food and wine stores offering traditional artisan foods like cheese and cured meats. And gelato, don’t forget about the gelato!
