What you will visit:

San Gimignano (on your own)
A small hamlet known as the "city of beautiful towers, " during the middle ages, San Gimignano was an important center for trade and for pilgrims traveling to or from Rome on the Via Francigena. Walk along the cobbled streets of the city's historic center, which has been declared a UNCESCO World Heritage site. One of the first sights you'll want to see is the Piazza Duomo, the heart of San Gimignano. Walking into this plaza is like walking straight into the Middle Ages. Three medieval buildings face one another in this triangular-shaped space - the most important is the Collegiata, a Romanesque cathedral known for its fine frescoes.

Pisa and Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles)
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) is home of the famed Leaning Tower, which is actually the cathedral's bell tower, as well the duomo, the baptistery, the monumental cemetery and museums. Many people ask why it leans and what its original purpose was. The tower was meant to be the bell tower for the cathedral, but due to its faulty design and loose soil beneath it, it never fulfilled its purpose. The Leaning Tower of Pisa really is leaning! On the side where the tower is higher, it stands at 187.27 feet, and on the low side it stands at 186 feet.
