6 San Gimignano Sights – Assassin’s Creed Ezio Tour

Continuing throughout my excursions in central Italy, I also went to San Gimignano. Known as the New York City of Tuscany, San Gimignano has some of the tallest and oldest medieval structures around. It was a charming Tuscan town, with some of the best gelato around.

Here are the buildings that are featured in Assassin’s Creed 2 that actually exist:

1) Palazzo Comunale   

This is the plaza where all of these famous buildings are.

These locations of other places in Tuscany do exist but I did not visit them because they are not in San Gimignano:

Villa Salviati – Florence, Italy – but edge of city

Monte Oliveto Maggiore – outside of Siena, Italy

Antico Teatro Romano – Ostia Antica, Italy outside of Rome
