The Countryside of Florence is so very beautiful. We drove from San Gimingnano to this little place that made Fattoria Olive Oil in San Donato where we had lunch, and got to taste Grappa. It’s a good thing we weren’t driving.
San Gimignano, Italy became a town in the 10th century. It was named after the poet Folgore da San Gimignano who was born there in 1270. It boasts five museums and nine monuments and is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. We had a great afternoon wandering through the town and through the shops. Many shops sell sketches of the Italian countryside done by local artists that are quite good.
