Tour of Tuscany

On Saturday we pulled a Diane Lane and went on a bus tour of Tuscany.  Throughout our day under the Tuscan sun we visited

San Gimignano, Siena, Monteriggioni, and Chianti.

Our first stop, San Gimignano, was a small town surrounded by walls.  I loved the quiet streets and quaint leather shops.

The town also provided great views of the Italian countryside.

Our next stop was the hilly but beautiful Siena.

 A friend recommended Nonno Mede's pizza so we decided to take a lunch break there.  The pizza was definitely some of the best I have had so far on the trip.

 I was so surprised by this grand square in the middle of Siena. 

The tiny town of Monteriggioni only has 58 residents, but I loved exploring the streets.  I also had some amazing blood orange juice in a cafe there. 

We ended the tour with an incredible olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting in Chianti.
