Join me on the trip of a lifetime. Enjoy this 3 minute view of what you can expect.

Newly Opened Torre Campatelli Offers In-Depth Look at History of San Gimignano

San Gimignano is no doubt one of Italy’s prettiest historic villages. Overlooking the Val d’Elsa from a hilltop in the Tuscan countryside, it has largely maintained the same structure and aspect it had in the Middle Ages, with its many towers forming an unmistakable skyline.
