San Gimignano - Piazza della Cisterna Christmas Decoration at Night
Tuscany

This is the Piazza della Cisterna in San Gimignano in Tuscany. One of the main squares of the medieval town with a well in the middle of it. In medieval times it was certainly one of the most important places in the town, surrounded by the family towers. During Christmas time parts of the town are nicely decorated with chains of light. San Gimignano´s old town became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990.

More About Tuscany

The Tuscany, one of the most beautiful Italian regions, is known throughout the world for its Landscapes and for the Works of Art that it houses (It is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance). Six localities have been designated World Heritage Sites: the Historical Center of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Pienza, the Square of the Cathedral of Pisa with the Leaning Tower and the Val d'Orcia. It is in the central Italy and borders with Emilia Romagna (north), Marche and Umbria (east) and Lazio (South). The West coast is bathed from the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Sea; here we can find the islands of the Tuscan archipelago including the island of Elba. The regional capital is Florence and the other provinces are: Arezzo, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena.
