Roadtrippin through Tuscany

TRAVEL

Pienza, Siena, Buonconvento, Montepulciano, Montealcino, Florence… the list of beautiful cities and villages to visit is endless. We’ve got our few favourite spots that we go to every single summer, like this one restaurant in Pienza with the best Pici with wild boar ragout – one of Tuscany’s regional specialities. Or the tiny leather workshops in Siena for a new pair of handmade ballerinas. Or the many delicatessen shops for wild boar salami and truffle Pecorino. IMG_3281

But next to our few Tuscan regulars, we always go explore new towns as well. Sometimes it’s a road trip and sometimes just a delightful lunch. Driving through the Tuscan countryside with the windows down and busting some good old Shania Twain tunes is one of my favourite things to do. Nothing tops the views you get here – except maybe a roadtrip through Cornwall. Tourists pulling over at the side of the road to take spectacular photographs are completely common in Tuscany. But you wouldn’t even have to do so, I’ve taken quite incredible landscape photos driving on country roads – the opportunities are endless.

But after a long day, it’s always beautiful to come home to a sunset like this one.
