Photographer's Note

In medieval times, San Miniato was on the via Francigena, which was the main connecting route between northern Europe and Rome. It also sits at the intersection of the Florence-Pisa road and the Lucca-Siena road. Over the centuries San Miniato was therefore exposed to a constant flow of friendly and hostile armies, traders in all manner of goods and services, and other travelers from near and far. (from Wikip.)

San Miniato the little village was an excellent place to stay at considering that it was about 40-60 km to each Pisa, Lucca, Florence, San Gimignano and Sienna right in the middle of all those famous places. There was also a train station on the Florence-Pisa line, which helped us avoiding taking the car in the cities.
