The Best Gelato in Italy
Eating the Best Gelato in Italy (ignore the faces because the suns in our eyes!)
Around San Gimignano Climbing The Tower View From the Top of the Tower On Top of The Tower
15 minutes away from Certaldo is the neighboring town of San Gimignano. For our “Free Day” we took a class trip here to have the “Worlds Best Gelato” at Gelateria Dondoli. Let me tell you, this seriously was the best gelato!! Almost everyone got a second cone for the ride home! I highly recommend this place if you have the chance to visit San Gimignano! The owner and employees are just as sweet as the gelato! Also I suggest getting raspberry and chocolate as your two flavors (best combination ever!)!!
After a inhaling (literally) our sweet treats, we climbed the tower located in the center of town. It was a bit intense (especially when we had to climb a ladder!), but was well worth it for the view! Climbing the Florence Duomo definitely prepared us for the climb! From the view we could actually see Certaldo and all of the beautiful, original buildings in town! Most towns in Italy are not 100% original due to natural disasters and wars (especially WWII), but San Gimignano is fully originally and was spared during WWII.
