After a beautiful breakfast with Anna and her mother Nicoletta we headed back to San Gimignano for a full day of exploring - and shopping. What the most wonderful place. It was built in 1148 with 72 towers and now only 14 still survive. It is so surreal walking through these old streets. Spent the majority of the ...
