Amazing Tuscany Skyline

Our Sunday drive on Saturday took us to the medieval town of San Gimignano. Perched atop a hill in central Tuscany, the town's 13 towers dominate the skyline. Built in the 12th and 13th centuries, these towers once guided pilgrims as they made their way to Rome along the northern European route. Today, the towers still serve as landmarks, guiding visitors from around the world on a trek through the city gates.

Piazzas serve as a community gathering spot for both locals and tourists.
