Ahh, one of my favorite areas to visit complete with gorgeous views, fantastic people, and delicious wine! So find a designated driver, rent a car, and get ready to keep up with speedy traffic through the gorgeous stonewalled roadways of Tuscany.

Siena– A fantastic medieval town within the Tuscany region.  Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to climb to the top of tower in the middle of the town square.

Pizza restaurant- When entering the town you will have the choice of walking down the road through the streets (what most people do) or look down upon the city by walking straight ahead.  If you’re located at the scenic view area overlooking the city look to your left.  There will be a little pizzeria facing the town.  This is a great locals restaurants that serves amazing pizzas for 1/2 the cost of the places on the main street….with a great view!

A stop in Chianti is a must as well to experience the quaint, small town feel of a town known worldwide for its signature red wine.

Foodies: I had the best gnocchi ever (still dreaming about it) at a 5 star Trip Advisor restaurant in San “G”.  You can’t miss it as it’s one of the only restaurants within the castle.
