San Gimignano Holidays

San Gimignano is famously called as the land of towers that are 11th and 13th century old. San Gimignano is beautifully located in the province of Siena, Tuscany in the north central of Italy. San Gimignano was founded in 3rd century BC as a small settlement. San Gimignano is on a hill that takes care of the valley of river Elsa. The hill had a small Etruscan hamlet during 200-300 BC which was the period of ancient Greek civilization. In the medieval times, Catholic pilgrims used to stop there while going to Rome and Vatican. San Gimignano has a rich historical background that is worth experiencing.

Majestic San Gimignano

A beautiful hill top, San Gimignano has a lot in store for you like churches, famous towers and museums.  You would not be bored in San Gimignano as it offers things like Thursday markets where you can pick up things for yourself and your loved ones.  Holidaymakers who are not well known with the architectural history have the option to enjoy buildings that are made in Tuscan Romaneque style. This style is seldom displayed in buildings now.

General Etiquette

When visiting Italy, make sure to make an eye contact while shopping or at a help/service desk because looking away is considered to be a sign of disinterest. When it comes to tipping, do not tip more than your bill as it is included in the cost at a restaurant.
