They label this medieval walled hilltop town the "Tuscan Manhattan", and you will soon see why. From a distance we assumed San Gimignano would be an exciting place to visit. However, initial appearances can be deceiving.

All total we spent about three to four hours here and did perhaps one hour of sightseeing. The remainder was spent finding a place to park and eat, the latter including each of us greedily consuming a gelato from the best ice cream shop in the world with awards to prove it. Yes, the ice cream was good.

As for the rest of the visit, Bird labels it "just okay", which translated means none-to-good. We took maybe one or two adequate pictures but will burden you with seven. Tomorrow we are off to Siena.
