The oldest part of the town is the “colle alta”, from where you can enjoy in the view of the lower part of the city, the Tuscan hills and countryside. But it also has a historical value since Colle had a very turbulent past.

It is said that Italy is practically a "living museum", so it’s quite reasonable that even the smallest towns are concealing great art. San Gimignano... is one of those little treasure chests. Famous for its fascinating Romanesque and Gothic architecture and 14 towers (originally the town had 72 towers!), the town boasts in museums with Italian artworks of the 14th and 15 centuries. If time permits, head for one of San Gimignano's many restaurants as it is a great opportunity to try typical Tuscan home cooking. Heads up – although it’s a relatively small community, it can get quite busy during the peak travel season because it is one of the preferred tourist attractions.

Sacro Bosco
Italy

Sacro Bosco, or Sacred wood, is an astonishing forest park inhabited by gigantic and breathtakingly beautiful sculptures of allegorical animals, monsters and figures. This masterpiece... is the work of Italian Duke Pier Francesco Orsini who initially wanted to devote a beautiful garden to his wife Giulia Farnese. However, she tragically died so Duke decided not to create a lovely garden but rather a bizarre park with monuments associated with death and the afterlife. It is a landscape garden like no other, so don’t miss it!
