What to see in San Gimignano Italy

Even if you had no idea what to see in San Gimignano Italy, you’d immediately notice its unique skyline. Now a UNESCO world heritage site, this walled Tuscan city was founded by the Etruscans and then became prosperous in the middle ages due to its location as part of the Via Francigena, an ancient pilgramage route between Rome and Canterbury. Then as many Tuscan cities, it experienced a decline after the Black Plague in the mid-14th century, but you’d never know it to visit it today.

It is packed to the gills with tourists, including many who arrive in busloads. It’s possible to get away from the throngs – just follow the small streets away from the crowds.
