Our Week in Italy: Tuscany

On our last day in Florence, we joined a Best of Tuscany day tour... we couldn't leave Florence without visiting Tuscany!

First stop: Siena

The Piazza del Campo where they have the Palio horse race... it sounds like quite a spectacle, I'd love to attend one day!

Lunch at a vineyard

House-made almond biscotti, nom nom nom!

The picturesque town of San Gimignano

A quick stop at the Leaning Tower of Pisa at sunset!!

Wow, these buildings were immense...

Our last dinner at Trattoria il Contadino... one of the tastiest and most INEXPENSIVE meals of the trip! Their gnocchi was out of this world...

Tiramisu in Italy was consistently delicious everywhere we went... unlike here in the states, every restaurant makes their tiramisu differently, and is often disappointing. NOT the case in Italy!! I wanted to lick the bowl..

And that was our trip to Italy in a nutshell!! I can't wait to go back... Ciao!
