Manhattan of the Middle Ages or "the city of towers". In the Middle Ages the patrician families tried to excel by the height of their residential towers, although a luxurious life within these towers was not possible. Of the once 72 family towers in San Gimignano today there are 15 left.
Spicchiaiolona is a 20 minutes' drive from San Gimignano.
As a center of medieval European trade and finance, it was one of the richest cities in the 15th and 16th centuries .
Florence is considered the cradle of the Renaissance. Because of its cultural importance - particularly for the visual arts - it is referred to as the "Italian Athens" since the 19th century.
Siena has always been in rivalry with Florence , in political , eco-nomic and artistic terms . Florence is a prime example of a Renaissance city, Siena preserved the medieval character of Italian Gothic.
Landmark is the Campanile, known as the Leaning Tower of Pisa .
Pisa has remained fairly original and genuine: its winding streets, bars and the typical yellow painted houses let the former glories of the city barely imagine.
A bay , where you can enjoy the sea: Shadowy pines, sandy beach and a fish restaurant on the harbor .
Not far from the beach is a big and interesting archaeological excavation site with Etruscan tombs.
