Sitting back at home, in that classic Aussie Summer heat, watching the tennis (of course!) thinking back to my time in Tuscany, the firsts words that come to mind would definitely have to be; rustic, charming, artistic and the obvious… shopping (sorry bank account… my bad…)
Get ready to be slammed by photos as I really couldn’t stop snapping…
The village charm remained in this beautiful city as we looked out from the bell tower, seeing terracotta roof infinity. Well that was until they sprinkled out on the famous Tuscan country side, which sent me into uncontrollable dreams of me sunning myself all year round, reclining and sipping Chianti wine and eating bread dipped in local olive oil and balsamic vinegar…. ahhh girl can dream….
Not to mention having love hearts pounding out of my eyes as I window shopped… well… maybe a little bit of shopping… my suitcase would testify against the ‘little’ shopping… Zara, you are my second home. The leather, oooohhh that leather, you just gotta buy some while your there, the options and range is endless, I officially give you permission to go mad there – there’s no judgement here.
Our stay wouldn’t of been complete without visiting both Sienna and San Gimignano; magnificent medieval towns, still surrounded by the rolling hills and fascinating history at every corner.
Everything about this region just made me grin (well that’s a little understatement…), the food, the beauty, the art. You really can’t beat it my friends!
