Located off the beaten path in central Tuscany, one of the most popular tourist spots is San Gimignano. Known for it towers, its a great day spot to see. The shopping it rather insignificant. You won't find anything unique rather its on touristy cheesy stuff so save your pennies. The tower offers a great view of the tuscan landscape so its definitely recommended. Other than that do the local fresco church. Its really a beautiful example of historic frescoes of the times. Although, your not allowed to take any pictures or video, which was kinda lame. For the most parts, these churches and museums allow photography without the flash, but not this one. Around San Gimignano are some great local wineries as well as the city of Volterra,
which is also a must see!
