Honeymoon Part 3: Tuscany

On our 6th day in Italy, Babe booked a day trip for us to the outskirts of Florence, Tuscany, to visit some of the famous tourist spots which are a bit of a hassle if we travel on our own.
The bus departs from the Firenze SMN at 9am so imagine how quick we had to be to make it to the bus that morning!
Thankfully though, the hotel staffs were very accommodating and understanding, and made sure we had enough food before we left for the trip.
The tour we took was The Best of Tuscany Tour and boy, we had a ball!
The host was amazingly friendly and even remembered our names so it felt a little more personalized in that sense. :)

The tour includes:

1. Visit to Siena, with a local tour guide who took us around the area such as the Piazza del Campo where horse races are (still) held at.

San Cristoforo - a Roman Catholic church

Posing in front of the Siena Cathedral

2. Visit to Chianti wineyard to have a traditional Tuscan lunch with a scenic view of San Gimignano. We even got to taste the wine and mingled with other fellow travellers!

3. Visit to San Gimignano, famous for its 360 degree scenic view of medieval town from the hilltop and award-winning gelato!

4. Dropped by the famous Tower of Pisa on our way back to Florence.

Won't leave Pisa without giving it a kiss!
