Introduction

 

This medieval town is a magical and incomparable landscape. The entire city is a lively museum, its medieval architecture recalling that of an old storybook. San Gimignano has all the mystery and allure of a medieval hill town. Its towers and narrow lanes are unavailable for access by car; however, walking through San Gimignano is an unrivalled experience and the best way to appreciate all it has to offer. Within its ancient walls are beautiful towers that once watched over the town. The restaurants offer the most exquisite dishes from Tuscany, served with the typical Sangimignanesi wine, the Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Museums housing the history of wine production, the creations of San Gimignano artists, and details of the lives of those from the Middle Ages are insightful gems of cultural wealth. History, art, architecture, food, and drink combine to make this town an enchanting place to visit.
