San Gimignano: a medieval gem in Tuscany
Today many consider this tiny village to be one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Tuscany. San Gimignano rises on the top of a hill, about 70 km from Livorno. In the distance, you can recognize it for its 14 towers. Because of this singular skyline, the town is usually called the Manhattan of Middle Ages. These towers symbolized economic stability in the past. Indeed, it was very expensive to build a stone tower and the richest families build them to show their power to others. There were originally 72 towers but many were destroyed during the centuries. They could be house towers, bell towers and watching towers.
In the Middle Ages many pilgrims used to come here because of its position along the famous route from Canterbury (England) to Rome, the Via Francigena.
The most beautiful square in the town is Piazza della Cisterna with its central well.
Local products of San Gimignano
The town of San Gimignano is on the Worlds Heritage List of UNESCO since 1990 for its historical beauty and well-preserved buildings.
However, the town of the fine towers is famous not only for its history, but also for its Vernaccia di San Gimignano, a white wine produced here. Additionally, this wine was the first one in the Italian wine history to get the DOGC (Denomination of Controlled Origin) in 1996.
Other local products are saffron and the golden ham (cured-dry ham with saffron from here).

Our private tour was on the first stop of a 10 day cruise. It was hands down the best tour! Michael was very knowledgeable of Tuscany and the 2 wineries we visited were fantastic. Greve was OK. Our favorite winery was a small family operation and after the private tour, the wife of the owner served us a delicious 3 course lunch outside under huge shade trees overlooking the countryside. The best day!!!
My wife and I will be in Livorno on 23 August 2019 on the Seabourn Encore, and would be interested in sharing a tour with others. Email email@example.com if interested.
