While in the Tuscan country side we had to make a pit stop at San Gimignano, I’ve been once before and everyone I know thats been recommended visiting, so naturally we had to visit!
A few words from Brittany about our time there:
Think rolling hills and amongst them, the most quant little village that feels like the equivalent of Disneyland, Italian style. Along with the stunning views, San Gimignano is home of the most AMAZING gelato shop, Gelateria Dondoli (world champions)! What I thought was just the sweetest thing ever, is that the owner actually stands outside the shop and greets every single tourist coming through his doors (in whatever language they speak too). It was just that extra little touch that made our experience so much more memorable. The gelato itself was absolutely incredible and I had the most amazing passionfruit of my life! One of the things I loved most about this village is that it was small enough to get around in a day, unlike many of our other day-trips, we didn’t feel like we left so much unseen! That being said, there are plenty of side streets and small pathways to get lost on (in a pleasant sort of way).
