travel inspiration: italy {part 7}

By: Lauren McPhillips
As my whirlwind trip in Italy comes to an end, I can't believe all the beautiful places I've been and all the fabulous experiences I've had. What began as a wariness towards going on a 'group tour' with Trafalgar Tours turned into a huge appreciation for what can be called 'guided holidays'. I had expectations of being stuck on a bus the whole time, but Trafalgar's new ' At Leisure' program gives guests tons of time to explore by themselves, but also shows them all the hidden gems of the cities they visit. So, would I recommend? Absolutely. I hope you've enjoyed reading about my travels as much as I've enjoyed sharing them with you. I really wish you all could have come on the trip with me and experienced the breathtaking architecture, yummy food and incredible design. Our last stop on the tour was Siena, and I spent several hours walking through its winding streets, soaking up my final hours in Italy. A medieval city, Siena is completely cobblestoned and simply charming -- it seemed like every corner I turned, there was a sweet surprise waiting for me in the form of a secluded fountain or hidden courtyard. Here are a few parts of Siena that took my breath away {do you think it's too much to want those doors for my own house? Perhaps...}. xo, Lauren
