Since arriving in Italy I’ve been antsy to get out of the city and experience the Tuscan countryside and recently I was finally able to take a day trip! Friends and I spent a Saturday bopping around San Gimignano and Tuscany enjoying the beautiful countryside and learning about the world renown vino. Our first stop: a stunning vineyard in the Brunello di Montalcino region of Tuscany. After a few glasses of wine… and a few hours of enjoying the stunning view (seriously though…) we left for San Gimignano where we visited another vineyard and enjoyed lunch. Actually though — what’s not to love?
