Saint Jimmy Johns

Which is so much easier to say than San Gimignano.
We found the tourists! There were soooo many busses and cars that ALL if the parking lots were full. That said, I could see why. This is the Disney version of Tuscany - downright perfect.
This village's claim to fame is its towers - between 13-15, depending on who counts them. We had lunch in the main square, sitting in the (yea, finally!) sunshine. Then we discovered a tiny antique fair in the next piazza and I got myself a couple of 1euro treasures.
Joining the herd, we meandered the streets, snapping photos, peeking into alleyways, getting a few trinkets and finishing with a gelato. Despite the crowds, I was feeling Tuscany.
