San Gimignano experienced its most flourishing period in the Middle Ages due to the fact that it was crossed by the Via Francigena, one of the main communication routes of the time. The town soon became a point of reference for numerous merchants, travellers and pilgrims. The town became embroiled in struggles between the Guelphs and Ghibellines and while the area resisted all kinds of adversities, it managed to enrich itself considerably and saw 1200 as the year of its greatest economic development.
With a historic center characterized by medieval architecture, San Gimignano is famous above all for the seventy towers built by the richest families of the time. The fourteen that remain characterize the city center as they tower above the suggestive panorama of the endless green hills dotted with villages, vineyards and olive groves. A small pearl of the province of Siena, the town was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1990. In addition to its history and culture expressed by the monuments, it also has excellent local products such as saffron and Vernaccia di San Gimignano, an excellent local white wine.
