Hilltop town famous for its defensive towers

San Gimignano: "the town of beautiful towers" is in Tuscany, 56 km south of Florence. It served as an important relay point for pilgrims travelling to or from Rome on the Via Francigena.
The patrician families who controlled the town built around 72
tower-houses (some as high as 50 m) as symbols of their wealth and
power. Although only 14 have survived, San Gimignano has retained its
feudal atmosphere and appearance. The town also has several masterpieces
of 14th- and 15th-century Italian art. San Gimignano has been inserted
from the Unesco in the list of the world-heritage patrimony of the
Humanity.
