Hill Towns of Tuscany
The hill towns of Tuscany are one of the most evocative attractions of the region. No other Italian region can match the depth of illustrious names in this genre offered by Tuscany.
Topping the list are two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in San Gimignano and Pienza; the former often referred to the Medieval Manhattan due to its extraordinary collection of towers and the latter simply a Renaissance marvel.
Volterra, Montepulciano and Cortona are three further famous hill towns of Italy and mainstays of any serious Tuscan itineraries.
