San Gimignano is the most lovely city in Tuscany. A lot of tourists, but nevertheless it's perfect for a stay. I like it very much, and I love the restaurant Beppone.

A short 1 1/2hours from Florence, San Gimignano is a refreshing visit from the over crowded Florence. Situated on a hill top, San Gimignano offers one of the best views of the Tuscan country side.
