Florence was quaint and pretty. We took a best of tuscany tour which brought us to Sienna, San Gimignano and Pisa. We saw wonderful countryside, medivial towns, vineyards and of course the ever famous leaning tower of Pisa. The architecture was ancient and beautifully preserved in these places. Of course the food was epic in Italy. I totally had my fill of pastas and pizzas.
The ancient ruins such as the Coloseum and Roman Forum was mesmerising. The tour guide’s stories really brought me back to those days giving me an idea of how they lived. Rome has preserved its pieces of history very beautifully right in the midst of their urban living. The streets of Rome are filled with amazing ancient architecture and monuments here and there. It was amazing to walk along and suddenly find a fountain or a monument or beautiful church just in front. Lovely time in Rome.
