San Gimignano – Very Beautiful Tuscany
In early july we took a quick trip up to San Gimignano, where we finally picked a place to celebrate our wedding. The area around San Gimignano is the most beautiful part of Tuscany tha t we have seen so far. And we’ve seen lots of beautiful areas of Tuscany. It was just so green and hilly, there were gorgeous views around every curve.
San Gimignano makes an interesting skyline – it is made up of towers built by rival families. Apparently the old version of ‘keeping up with the Joneses’ meant trying to build the biggest tower in the center of town.
San Gimignano is a cute little town – we had a nice little dinner at a pizza place, wandered the streets, ate lunch in one of the two main squares …and enjoyed driving through the country side (when I wasn’t stressed out about finding a wedding place).
We had fun taking pictures at sunset and at dark, and then, uncharacteristically for us, we got up early the next morning to enjoy the town when it was completely empty. We had fun running around and taking pictures. :)
I’m really starting to look forward to our wedding celebration!
