Travel diary Italy 2017
Our holiday is already over *cries* and that means that there is a diary with photos waiting for you! Enjoy!
Ready to go! At half past 12 we took the plane that brought us to Pisa in 1,5 hours. In the airplane I read a book & enjoyed a soda, which I didn’t do for quit a long time!
We have had a beautiful flight <3
…and also landing was beautiful!
Once arrived at the hotel it was time to arrange a few things for the Vespa which we would pick up the next day. And on the way I could not resist taking pictures of course!
Our group. By the way, we were the first group this year! (Photo taken by Patitio)
The first day of tour has begun! We started in Pisa and the day ended in Siena. On the way I did the best discovery ever. Alwin and Renee, a couple from our group, ordered a sandwich with ice cream. And of course I had to try that too. Really recommended!
And a second ice cream could be added that day too. We made a stop in the famous place San Gimignano, where we orderd an ice cream at one of the best ice cream stores in the world. The man in the picture is the owner by the way 😉
After arriving at the hotel in Siena it’s time to discover the city. Siena is really beautiful! On the picture the Piazza del Campo square where il Palio (the horse race) takes place annually.
In the evening we dine with the group at San Domenico, a restaurant with a good menu, but you will especially appreciate the fantastic view!
The next evening we arrive in Florence and while walking through the city we come across the Hardrock cafe where they seems to have a happy hour. Time for cocktails!
.. and we are also hungry so we order nacho’s <3
The famous Ponte Vecchio.
Day 3 has started and on this pic we take a stop for photos and drinking some water. After the first day, we decided to drive alone. Driving with a big group is really a disaster. You just have to wait all the time by stops or crossing points and can you are not able to stop for pictures or do your own thing. Alwin and Renee thought from our groups thought the same about this and we decided to drive together. Lovely!
After a few hours relaxing at a beautiful lake, it’s time for the village Vinci. Yes, where Leonardo Da Vinci was born!
Nature in Tuscany is really beautiful! Today we drove along this road with large sunflower fields 🙂
Just a picture with Renee 😉 Today we had a special diner in Lucca. The owners of this restaurant are brothers, one of them is a chef and the other is an artist. You dine in an art gallery and the food is also very special. We enjoyed a special 5 course dinner with a tasty glass of wine.
it is almost the last day already! Today we drove to Montefegatesi. On the way we made a stop at this famous bridge called Ponte della Maddalena.
So this is Montefegatesi.
An tensive last day. From Lucca we travel to Pisa for a day of beach. On our way our road is blocked by a forest fire!
We were the very first customers in a new Brownie shop in Pisa. Delicious!
A last day wandering through Pisa. A selfish in front of the Pisa tower can’t be missing in this list 😉
