Italy - San Gimignano

UNESCO World Heritage
The city became famous mainly through its extraordinary medieval architecture, in particular its numerous medieval towers (12th – 14th century), which rise from the small houses visible in the distance and gave the city the nickname “Manhattan of Tuscany”. 15 of the original 72 towers still dominate the almost unchanged, well preserved, historic centre.
