Marie MonnierOne of the most amazing Cathedral I had the chance to visit. There is so much details and attention put in the place you'll never be disappointed. The ceiling is breathtaking and the size of the monument is huge. If you are in Florence you HAVE to walk inside and enjoy this historical place.

San Gimignano is beautifully situated in the south of Florence and is one of the most beautiful towns in Tuscany.
At that time, the aristocratic family who controlled the city built 72 towers about 50 meters high to show their wealth and power. The city is full of rare and heavy Romanesque stone towers, which makes the town win the title of City of Baita.
Years passed, and there were 14 existing stone towers in the year, the highest of which is 54 meters high. It is the only tower that can be opened to the public. There are many beautiful murals in the Podesta Palace downstairs.
From the top of the tower you can overlook the panoramic view of the town and the idyllic scenery of Tuscany in the distance.
Shuijing Square is the central square of San Gimiano. It is named after a 13th-century well on one side. This well was the most important source of water for the residents of the ancient city. Now the well has dried up.
As the town's tourism is increasingly developed, in order to ensure the safety of tourists, it is also on the iron mesh, perhaps because the beauty of the mountain city and the life style of the middle ages make people forget to return, many tourists have thrown coins to the well to make a wish, looking forward to A day to meet again.
