Up and coming town

What a long drive from Positano to San Gimignano, the next stop on our whirlwind journey.   San Gimignano is a small town with a medieval feel in the Siena region.   The town is well known for its medieval architecture, especially its towers.   While many towns towers and look out point have been destroyed over time, San Gimignano has managed to maintain 14 of their towers.  We spent the day walking around and exploring the town.  Not too much to see but a very cute town.  One thing I wish I remembered was the name of the pizza place where we had slices of pizza that I think were a euro or two each.   The dough had a nice crunch to it and the tomato sauce on the pizza was just perfect. yummm, I wish I had a piece right now 🙂  John and Dana went two years ago while on their honeymoon and they said this time it was way more touristy.  San Gimignano is definitely an up and coming city.
