San Gimignano

San Gimignano is a medieval hill town in Tuscany. It is well-known for its medieval architecture, especially its towers, which can be seen from several kilometres outside the town. The town is also known for the white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, grown in the area. The main attractions in San Gimignano are the fourteen towers that have been conserved beautifully. There are also many churches in the town, including the Collegiata, formerly a cathedral, and Sant'Agostino, which houses a wide representation of artworks from some of the main Italian renaissance artists. The Communal Palace is currently home of the town gallery with works by Pinturicchio, Benozzo Gozzoli, Filippino Lippi, Domenico di Michelino, Pier Francesco Fiorentino and others. From Dante's Hall in the palace, access may be made to a Majesty fresco by Lippo Memmi, as well as the Torre del Podestà, which stands fifty-four metres high. The heart of the town contains the four squares; the Piazza Duomo (where the Collegiata is located), the Piazza della Cisterna, the Piazza Pecori and the Piazza delle Erbe. The main streets are Via San Matteo and Via San Giovanni, which cross the city from north to south.
