San Gimignano is a medieval city without comparison. A walk through its main streets, hidden lanes, strolling below the remaining 14 towers that stand out on the horizon as you approach the city, to discover its hidden treasures and the masterpieces found in the Collegiate Church (Benedict of Maiano, the frescoes of the Old and New Testaments and much more) and on to the church of Saint Agostino with frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli. There will be time to stop at the award winning gelateria (ice cream shop) before heading on to Chianti or Colle Val D’Elsa, famous for its crystal glass production, or to Monteriggioni, a Sienese outpost during the historic battle with rival Florence, mentioned in Dante’s Divine Comedy. Here kids might enjoy walking along the perimeter wall which encloses this charming town.
