We visit the Medieval gem, San Gimignano, described as the Manhattan of Tuscany for its tower-houses inhabited by rich merchants who traded along the Via Francigena, which led pilgrims from all over Europe to Rome. We get to the famous square Piazza della Cisterna and then to the stunning Collegiata Church, the Torre Grossa and the Torri Gemelle.
