Toscana

31 July – 3 August 2015

We were happy to take ‘Dolce Vita’ for a ride through the beautiful hilly landscape of Toscana. We drove past ancient grain fields,

made a stop at a vineyard to taste Chianti,

and drove through a little road lined with cypress trees. These trees are so typical for Toscana, so that we were determined to have this experience :-)

Next to enjoying the landscape of Toscana, we visited the magic town Siena.

Chris managed to take ‘Dolce Vita’ on Piazza del Campo :-) 

 

When we took place on one of the terraces at Piazza del Campo we were overwhelmed by a local festivity: the celebration of the latest winning contrada of the Palio di Siena (the famous horse race in Siena).

Next time we should make sure to visit Siena when the Palio takes place!

The winning contrada of the Palio was Torre (Tower).
