Florence and San Gimignano, Italy

Our visit to Florence was a blast. We took the train from Rome’s Termini station and were in Florence about 3 hours later. It was a fun filled 3 days with good friends, good food and a lot of walking. Florence is an amazing city full of history. Lots of shopping too, if that’s your thing, not to mention the museums. Our day in the walled medieval city of San Gimignano was the highlight of the trip for me. It is located in the Siena region of Tuscany. We had originally planned to spend just a few hours, but once there, we were enchanted and spent the day meandering about , taking in all the architecture of the tower houses. It reminds of Malta in some ways. We finished our day there with a dinner of wild boar, florentine steak and lots of wine, for which the region is famous. Here are some photos from the trip.ImageImageImageImage

    Lovely photos. Dinners of fiorentina and cinghiale, capped off with gelato. Is it any wonder that Italy (and Tuscany in particular) is a Mecca for foodies?

      Mecca is exactly the right word. I can’t wait to go back. My husband has been telling me about Bologna. I can’t wait to squeeze that visit in. You made my mouth water with those smoked ribs. I do however have to admit that l always cook my ribs first, then finish it off on the grill. We did make friends with our neighbour who had a smoker and always shared!
