When the guide book tells you to visit San Gimignano either early morning or late evening DO IT!!! What a different experience walking around this town when hardly any shops were opened. By the time we left at 11 a.m. there were lines of cars trying to get into the full parking lots. I'm strolling, some buying, many pictures , but mostly the morning story was Cafe and gelato.
I'll miss this town. And really fell in love with the smaller Hilltown nearby Certaldo Alto.
