Bella Toscana

I’ve been very lucky to have visited Tuscany many, many times. I’ve explored thoroughly Florence and Siena. I’ve walked around Lucca and marvelled at the Leaning Tower in Pisa. I’ve tasted the most delicious olive-oil and wine; ate a lot of excellent pizza and pasta dishes and had numerous ice-creams ๐Ÿ™‚ I saw Tuscany’s countryside too and visited hilltop towns Montepulciano and Montalcino and San Gimignano. I spent a couple of lovely hours in Pienza and soaked my tired travelling feet in the thermal water of Bagno Vignoni. This region is truly as beautiful as in the paintings.

Let me take you on a photo tour of one of the most beautiful regions in the world:

  2. In Florence right now! My first trip and is indeed very beautiful! Yesterday we took a lovely day trip to Siena, and tomorrow we are heading to Pisa. I am very excited! Any suggestions would be lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve been fortunate enough to have spent time exploring both Florence and Pisa. I hope to get back again one of these days soon. Thanks for linking up. #TPThursday

  4. Gorgeous photos, Tanja. I love Tuscany too. I spent one memorable (for some of the wrong reasons) week cycling from hill town to hill town in Southern Tuscany. Oh my goodness, those hills are steep! The food was amazing though. I remember Pienza being particularly beautiful.

    I’ve been to Tuscany and agree with your comments. I’ve done the some of the same things but not the Tower of Pisa, Lucca and San Gimignano. I would particularly like to see those last two one day. Loved the tour!

  7. I’ve always wanted to visit Florence, but I have the feeling that it might just disappoint up close. Maybe this year… it’s always on my list. ๐Ÿ™‚ Pretty sure that Lucca wouldn’t!
    Sorry about the health issues. Grand plans are one thing, but it has to fit well with the family stuff, doesn’t it? Best wishes for 2016!
