San Gimignano is a small medieval hill town in the province of Siena and also a UNESCO world heritage site. It is famous for its towers of varying height which were constructed in the 12th century by rivalry families who wanted to demonstrate their power by the height of their tower. To date 14 of them are still preserved which form a pretty skyline and make the town recognisable from afar.
