Tuscany - San Gimignano
San Gimignano is rich in works of art, good shops, and good restaurants where local wine Vernaccia can be savored. The town's most important medieval buildings are clustered around the central Piazza del Duomo. The imposing Torre Grossa is the biggest tower in town, with views that are well worth the climb. The Palazzo del Popolo houses the Museo Civico, featuring Taddeo di Bartolo's, Pinturicchio, Bartoldo di Fredi, Filippino Lippi, and Sala di Dante, where an inscription recalls a visit by the poet in 1300.
