Destination: Tuscany

With the temperatures reaching the 100's every day of the past month or so, I find myself reflecting on our early Spring road trip through Tuscany.  The weather was a bit overcast, but such a perfect setting for driving the countryside and spending our days tasting the diverse wines of the region.  Tuscan wine is so much more than Chianti, but we'll get into that later!  In the next string of posts, I'll share some of our experiences wine tasting, site seeing and sleeping in a real castle tower!!

After a one day layover in Madrid, we flew into and out of Bologna, rented a car and spent eight days driving through Italy.  Our route was Bologna, Parma, Bologna, Arezzo, Montepluciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Siena, Florence, and back to Bologna.  Such an amazing trip with a few fun surprises along the way!
