San Gimignano, also known as San Gimignano, another small medieval town in the Siena district, once home to the ancient Jane Road in France (the pilgrimage route from Canterbury to Rome) and fertile land. The rich agricultural resources are splendid, and the same is because the Black Death has come to an abrupt end. After the Black Death has been ravaged, the Medici family has taken this small independent town into the jurisdiction of Florence. Since then, it has never prospered before/hh. / San Gimignano is known for its white wine and towers. The struggles within the medieval aristocracy intensified, and various disputes and competitions between the families showed their power, wealth and identity with the height of the tower. Therefore, at that time, the aristocrats were rushing to build their own towers. The more they built, the more they built, the more 72 towers were clearly visible outside the distant city, until San Gimiano was returned. Under the jurisdiction of Florence, the height of the tower is reduced and must not exceed the Palazzo Comunale City Hall.
Traveling to Italy, Florence is generally a must-go city. In fact, there are several ancient cities around Florence that are suitable for day trips. More than 50 kilometers south of Florence, there is a small town called San Gimignano. It is not as famous as Florence, and the scenery is not bad.

At that time, the aristocratic family who controlled the city built 72 towers (about 50 meters high) to show their wealth and power. Today, there are still 14 towers of different heights, which have become the symbol of the city. The towers of cities such as Florence were all destroyed.
