Italy Photo Diary ~ Under that Tuscan Sun

florence domeSitting 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…)

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….

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!
