- Rick Steves: The ancient Tuscan towers of San Gimignano
By Rick Steves - Tuesday Jan 24, 2017
Visually striking and perfectly preserved, it gets all the fawning attention from passing tour buses.Though a unique sight today, pointy skylines were the norm in Tuscany in the Middle Ages, when feuding noble families ran the hill towns (think Montagues and Capulets).Each family had its own private army that would periodically battle things out from the protection of its respective family towers.While some were built as a refuge against attackers, others were empty, chimney-like structures built only to boost noble egos.A visit here also includes access to a small museum with festive frescoes that provide a peek at how people dressed, lived, worked, and warred in the 14th century.Though San Gimignano has perfectly good accommodations, if you want to get the full dose of that salt-of-the-earth Tuscan magic, stay in the countryside surrounding the town, either at a bed-and-breakfast-type guesthouse or an agriturismo (a small working farm that rents out rooms).At many of these places, visitors can enjoy fine food, a swimming pool, a serene setting and the company of other travelers — and good Tuscan living.No matter where you stay, eating dinner at one of San Gimignano’s restaurants provides a fine opportunity to sample typical Tuscan home cooking.The area is well known for producing some of the best saffron in Italy; you’ll find the spice for sale in shops and as a flavoring in meals at finer restaurants.Rick Steves writes European travel guidebooks and hosts travel shows on public television and public radio.
