San Gimignano

(San Jim-in-yano) 
In the Tuscan hills 

One of many walled in cities in Italy, it was our favorite. 
It was also featured in the movie, Tea With Musolini 
Built in 800 AD, it still looks the way it did back then. 
Architects and builders of today - take note. 

Here's Linda at the entrance 

Charlie, taking my picture 

One of many towers. 
Each was built to outdo their neighbor. 
Size did matter here. 

Mary, greeting her subjects at the fountain in the main square 

Charlie again, speaking to the masses 
He kind of got carried away in the atmosphere 

Us, at the fountain 

On to Venezia
