Torre Grossa, San Gimignano

San Gimignano

The Torre Grossa is the tallest surviving tower of San Gimignano. There is no elevator, so you have to climb all 54 meters on foot. The inside of the tower has been reinforced with a steel staircase winding around the interior.

The view at the top makes it all worth while….

I noticed a sculpture of a naked man on top of a nearby tower.

The Piazza della Cisterna has a beautiful old well. The first photo (above) was taken through the arch of the well.

    Totally enjoyed this set of images. Sending to my sweetie along with the miniature version – know he will enjoy both. He is especially partial to the old villages nestled in the hills.
