The next stop on "The Best of Tuscany Tour" was San Gimignano.
This is on of Tuscany's best preserved medieval towns.
Piazza della Cisterna is the main square.
We of course had to stop and try some world champion gelato! :)
We walked to La Rocca di Montestaffoli, the town's fortress and climbed some stairs for some amazing views of San Gimignano.
A great view of the 15 remaining medieval towers.
Families would build these tower houses, with each competing and trying to build the tallest tower.
At one time there were 72 towers.
This picture makes me laugh! :) Jake is imitating the guards at the Sistine Chapel, clapping his hands and saying "No photos!"
There was no traffic in this city, which made it so nice to walk around.
Another great stop on this Tuscany tour!
