It's one of those must see hilltop villages in Tuscany. Why do I call it the Manhattan of Tuscano?
It's because it has 13 towers rising from the village dominating the skyline.
|San Gimignano - Go on, knock on this door. I dare you!|
|Now tell me, is this a medieval Manhattan?|

from a different angle from where I took my photograph.
Not my drawing and no ownership known.
Again I digress (I do that a lot - sorry), anyway we had a lovely coffee in the sunshine at the first cafe just inside the first gates. As pleasant as this was, the sad part was that Sue, feeling rather warm and taking in some vitamin D, decided to hang her woolen cardy over the chair and that was where it stayed after we moved on.
|On these steps we ate pizza in the sun and took in the local atmosphere of San Jiminy Cricket.|
|The towers of San Gimignano - an amazing sight. I'm glad we went there.|
