SAN GIMIGNANO (Tuscany), Italy, walking tour in 4k - with captions.

10 things to do in SAN GIMIGNANO Italy.

San Gimignano is a small walled medieval hill town on the ridge of a hill in the Province of Sienna, Tuscany, in north-central Italy. It is encircled by three walls and it has as its highest point, to the west, the ruins of a fortress dismantled in the 16th century. There are eight entrances into the town, set into the second wall, which dates from the 12th and 13th centuries. Today San Gimignano is on the tourist route and many Tours of Italy include an afternoon in San Gimignano to savour its cosy restaurants, shops and ice-cream parlours, not to mention the spectacular views from the famous “Panorama Walk”! It is also nicknamed “The Town of the Towers.”

We shall be staying in the 13th Monastery of Sant’ Agostino - the  second largest church in San Gimignano (owned by the Order of St. Augustine) where you will find frescos and paintings by famous artists. Behind the church and the Monastery there is a garden, and a terrace built into the old walls of the town. From the Terrace there are spectacular views of Tuscany, olive groves, the town’s roof tops, and vineyards.
