A Vespa in Tuscany

On our recent travels to Italy, I finally ventured out on a vespa in Tuscany and loved every minute of it.

Everyone who Vespas says it’s the only way to see Tuscany and it always looked so cool. Last year, we didn’t get a chance to venture out, but this year, there were two vespas at our disposal and I plucked-up the courage to give it a go.  And I’m so glad I did!Continue reading

Romantic evening in Florence

I’ve been waiting a while to write this post. During the month of my 30th birthday, I got to celebrate a lot, to see my 30s in, in style. These celebrations started in Italy and the hubby and I shared a very romantic evening in Florence, where I was totally and utterly spoiled rotten.

It was our first full night away from the little lady, so it had even bigger meaning for us…we’d get to sleep! Woohoo! Who says romance is dead?

So we booked the most amazing air bnb right on the river, with views of the Ponte Vecchio (separate post on that coming soon!). In fact, the Ponte Vecchio was within touching distance. It really had the wow-factor and we were gutted to only be there one night, as we could’ve easily sat on our balcony and watched the world go by with a bottle of Prosecco, all night.Continue reading

Eating out in Volterra

Tuscany is packed full of beautiful cities, towns and villages. Every time we visit, we discover somewhere new and each has its own quirks, delicacies and style. I so enjoy driving through the Tuscan hills and stumbling across a new place. But one place that we discovered on our very first visit to Tuscany and one place that we visit on every single trip, is the hill-top town of Volterra.

Volterra, although popular with visitors and tourists, has managed to retain its Tuscan charm and is very much a lived-in town (quite different to its rival and neighbour San Gimignano) and still feels authentic. Its narrow alleyways are packed full of quaint little shops, cafes and restaurants.

Eating out in Volterra is an absolute joy and this trip saw us eat out twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Continue reading
