travel inspiration: italy {part 4}

By: Lauren McPhillips
Next up on the Italy excursion is Tuscany, and my, oh, my -- you have to see it to believe it. We traveled on the Trafalgar bus from Rome {have you ever heard of a tour company using a Mercedes bus?} and although I was zonked, it was impossible to fall asleep because the view was so beautiful. On our way to our hotel in Montecatini, we stopped off in Greve at the Castello Vicchiomaggio, a Tuscan castle and renowned wine estate. Although it was cloudy, the view from the top of the hill was extraordinary and the building's architecture was to-die-for. Isn't it just the definition of 'picturesque'? We also had a wine tasting, as the area is famous for Chianti wines. This was such an extraordinary experience and I have to give props to Trafalgar for organizing this, because it's not a place I would have even known about if I was traveling solo. Tomorrow: Florence {ahhh, Firenze}. xo, Lauren
