Tuscany – Day 104-108

We flew from Catania to Rome, and then drove a rental car to a villa near Siena, where we would stay during our Tuscan visit. It was picture perfect Tuscany living, situated on vast olive and grape groves.


FLORENCE

A visit to Tuscany requires a visit to Florence. Here we took a tour of museums, shopped the Ponte Vecchio, and of course, ate gelato.

SAN GIMIGNANO

San Gimignano is a medieval town southwest of Florence, still enclosed by 13th centure walls. What I love about Italy is that so many things are old and ancient, with people living among it. It all looks hundrds of years old, it’s living and functioning in the present.


  

ASSISI

Technically Assisi is in Umbria. It is famous for being the birth place of St. Francis of Assisi. We toured the beautiful basilica, and walked around town a little before the rain.
