There is also a duomo right next to the tower which provided more photo ops. ...

It's a very cute town as you can see in the photos. It was a quick stop for dinner and gelato before driving back. San Gimignano is known for its boar meat...Oscar ordered the "roast pig shin" and it was actually quite tasty. It came with ...
