Poggibonsi and San Gimignano

Today we left Florence and booked into a Hotel for the night.

The hotel we picked was in the small town of Poggibonsi halfway between Florence and Siena.

After checking in and unpacking we headed on a day trip to San Gimignano - San Gimignano is a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena, Tuscany, north-central Italy. It is mainly famous for its medieval architecture, especially its towers, which may be seen from several kilometers outside the town.

San Gimi (as we liked to call it) was another small enclosed village. It is famous for its towers, one which we went up to get amazing views of San Gimi and the surrounding area. The highlight of going to Sam Gimi was the most amazing - Worlds Best actually - Gelato.

In the afternoon we headed to another small town called Volterra I was a bit over it and feeling quite car sick so I had a nice snooze in the car while the other girls looked around.
