After running around the cities of Milano and Venice we traveled to Tuscany to spend 3 days just south of Siena. The rolling mountain tops and farms spread as far as your eyes could see. We checked out some local restuarants and were treated like kings. The food was great! We also took day trips to Pisa and Cinque Terra. Pisa was really small so we banged out some pictures and headed for the west coast of Cinque Terra. There are five cities wrapping around the Mountain coast that can be hiked or by train. Adam and I went to stunning Monterosso and hiked to Vernazza which took over 1.5 hours of climbing steps and sweating perfusely. But we were treated to a nice sandy beach when we arrived. Not having our swim suits with us didn't stop us from diving into the cool waters and relaxing. The only downside to this day trip was the travel back to the villa, it took 3.5 hours of winding roads at night. It totally sucked but it was well worth it. The next day we traveled to a Castle in Montigionni and to Volterra (site of Twilight 3 movie). Volterra was on top of a giant mountain and we could literally see for miles. We hiked thru the city and marvelled at the ancient ruins. Even though the pics won't be able to capture a fraction of the beauty of Tuscany, I will post some anyways Roma here we come!
