a medieval gem
This is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Tuscany, thanks to the many towers still standing within its walls.
We can climb on top of the highest one, the so-called "torre grossa". San Gimignano holds very special works of art in its churches, amazing frescoes on the walls of the main church, the "Collegiata" and also in the Sant'Agostino basilica. We will then walk up to the former fortress, built by the Florentines in the XIV century. Here we can enjoy the panorama from the only tower left of this complex.
We will walk along the historical centre of San Gimignano and its main squares, looking at the several towers built in the Middle Ages.

Extremely knowledgeable, accomodating, personable. She had a a very thorough knowledge of San Gimingnano. A three hour tour is just enough time and you can spend the rest of your time exploring on your own. She pointed out ifno on the church frescos that the group would never discover on our own.
