The lovely medieval city of Siena, Tuscany – Italy

Hello guys! Today I present to you my pictures of Siena. I enjoyed so much my time there, it was really love at first sight! Siena gives you so much beauty to bring home inside your heart. I suggest you to save some time to just stroll through the streets of the city.

The city center is closed for traffic, so if you’re planning to arrive by car you’ll still have to walk or use public transport to visit Siena. After all good exercise you deserve a pause for a glass of wine or an espresso! 😉 We enjoyed so much the lovely deli Toscana Golosa. We came to this place based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and it totally lived up to the expectations! We ordered a platter of cold cuts along with some Chianti wine. The platter was generous and so delicious. Pecorino, crudo and a lot more stuff. Satisfying, affordable and friendly. Strongly recommended!

Tiny country of San Marino

Yes, it’s a country, even though it is fully surrounded by Italian land. And it’s the oldest republic still in existence, founded in the year 301. It retains a medieval feel in the historic center of its capital and makes for a pleasant day visit. The total are is just above 60 km2 but somehow they found space to cultivate some vines. They produce a very nice sparkling variety! Views of the city towers and Mount Titano are mesmerizing! Hope you enjoy the pictures! Love, lights and hugs…see you soon!
