A view that captured my heart

Tuscany is everything you have dream of and more! It is one of the most famous and beautiful regions of Italy, for a good reason. It will literary take your breath away. 

I can’t even express how much this day trip meant to me and my husband. We were celebrating our 18 years of marriage and knew if traveling to Italy... a day trip was at the top of our list. Tuscany has something for everyone, quaint towns, stunning views, history, food that is superb, and of course wine! 

Being here, you will drive by the traditional cypress trees and you will feel like you are in a painting and it’s everything that you have imagined and more. Our day trip consisted of visiting three villages(Montalcino, Pienza, and Montepulciano).

A winery that is owned by a local family and their passion for wine is deeply treasured at this vineyard in Montalcino. After some wine tasting and chatting with the locals, it’s time to drive to Pienza close by for a gourmet lunch.

Here we would be sitting hilltop to admire the rolling green scenery and the most breathtaking views I have ever seen. Plus, enjoying a delicious lunch. We spent our free time walking around the streets and finding all the hidden gems around every corner. The last stop is Montepulciano, which is a Tuscan medieval village. We visited an underground city that was located downstairs of a local wine shop. Learning about the wines, tastings, and history of this building will capture your heart and you will want to bring all the wine back home with you. 

This is a must-do for wine and food lovers! It was the highlight of our Italy trip and will be remembered forever.
