Hill Towns

Over the course of two weeks in Tuscany, we examine the urban design and social life of a number of hill towns on field trips. The towns we visit may be World Heritage sites such as San Gimignano, members of the Slow Cities movement such as Massa Marittima, market towns (Sovicille), or unknown and untouristed villages (Chiusdino). Read vignettes about these towns written by our students:
