We did not spend a lot of time in San Gimignano. I vaguely remember that it is famous for its towers. It’s strange that what I remember most vividly is the shop selling the best gelato in the world 😛 and of course sitting around its historic centre at the stairways of the well 🙂
Wall that surrounds the town - reminds me of a 古城
Outside a shop selling crafts
See the tower? Not sure why we did not explore one...hmmm...
Simple act of patriotism - green, red, white
Historic centre 1
Seize the day! How apt - time is of the essence for making ceramic
Historic centre 2
Historic centre 3 - many treated the well like a wishing well 🙂 coins are swishing! 😛
Church near the historic centre - very different from the others we saw in Italy. Looks simple and strong - perhaps that is what faith is supposed to be?
Near the church - another black and white picture
Notice board in town - captured the time for that moment in black and white
Gelato world champion and the girls. Sweet.
Savouring the gelato by the well - quite cheap by European standards. 3 euros?

Ah – there’s so much of the Tuscany region that we have not explored. Till next time 🙂
