Travel Italy – Discover the Beauty of Tuscany

By on July 7, 2016

Tuscany is like a painting. Imagine misty green hills, golden light, vineyards and castles, villas and olive groves. It is a picture perfect scenery. It is filled with historic small towns, delicious authentic food and fine local wine. And the ice cream? Dreamy! Join us as we discover Tuscany and start planning your perfect trip to Tuscany!

Florence – Vibrant, exciting and lively, Florence is a renaissance center, full of art and history. The city shines in a golden light and is home to some of the world’s greatest art creations. Stand on Ponte Vecchio (the old bridge) and watch the sunset over Firenze, visit the marvelous Duomo or marvel at Michelangelo’s David, the legendary renaissance sculpture.

Siena – Italy’s loveliest medieval city, set in Tuscany. Piazza Il Campo will lift your soul, you can buy fresh bread and delicious wine at one of the small local shops. Climb up the 500 steps leading to the head of Torre del Mangia tower, where you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of Siena and its surroundings.

San Gimignano – A small village in the heart of Italy’s wine country, with quaint streets, ancient towers and tiny restaurants, this is the Italy we see in postcards. Eat some homemade pasta, drink a craft of red wine, and don’t forget to whisper to your love “la vita e piu dolce con te” (yup, that’s Italian for “life is sweeter with you!”).
