We could have chosen to end the day here, but we have more places to see and, sadly we had to leave the magical city (we´ve promised ourselves to go back).
We drove on the evening through the windings roads of Tuscany. We learned with celerity why there was so many people who wanted to come here, just to see this region of italy: neverending hills, like a sea in yellow and green, with cypresses like ancient guardians of the fields.
If you want to go to Tuscany there is a lot of options, a lot of villages to visit. We´ve just chosed one: the famous San Gimigniano, to visit, but there is a lot of thing to see, enjoy and taste.
San Gimigniano owes its fame to its multiple towers. Once of my friends told me it was called "the medieval Manhattan" because the broken skyline of this town.
TRIP TIP: Beware of cars!!!! San Gimignano is a crowed place and there´s no much place to park, so the parking lots are incredibly expensive!!! About 2 euros each hour, and it´s difficult to find a place. Choose well when to go (earlier the better), be patient and if you can avoid car, perfect.
