Italy was unbelievable. Period. The End.

We were completely blown away by the incredible food (the cheese!), wine, and breath taking views; and we were so fortunate to get to experience all of these with family and friends.  The only thing that could have made this vacation nestled in the middle of Tuscany any better is a romantical wedding… oh wait, there was one!!  My words really cannot do justice for this place… so bring on the pictures!

First stop: 1 night in Rome.

Day 2: Drive to Lornano to find our new home for the week.

Next up: Day trip to Cortona for wine tasting and dinner with Bill and Lou:

The next day after breakfast and a morning swim, we made our way to Montalcino:

That evening the wedding festivities began with a welcome dinner in Monteriggioni:

Wedding day was next.  Beautiful ceremony and reception with an incredible setting for a wonderful couple!  Again, no words….

Final day in Italy: Day trip to Florence:

And to top it all off, a delicious cooking class that evening:

This was an incredible trip.  We left Italy with full bellies and even “fuller” souls.
