Of course everyone has heard of Tuscany. There is a beautiful small town there, called San Gimignano. It gets quite a few visitors but while everyone is buying gelato and shopping you should go straight to the Torre Grossa (literally means tall tower) it was built in 1310, so it is a little bit game of thrones and the reward amps up when you finish climbing the tower. The views over the Tuscan landscape are breathtaking. You deserve that gelato after that!
