Photo: A couple of days in San Gimignano got off to a good start with the view from our hotel room
We don’t normally do this. Visit places in July and August. San Gimignano, such a stunning place, was packed with tourists. I know, we were two of them. We often comment that if you walk only one street away from the main drag then it’s like being a local, so few people. This is how we explored for the most part but it’s impossible to avoid the throng up and down the main street.
This time we had little choice as we planned the trip around a Bocelli concert. We added to our cultural experince by going to see an exhibition of Helmut Newton photographs. The gallery was also a welcome break form the ferocious sun.
