    Comics and Cobblestone

    We’re in the middle of Tuscany now. With it’s autumn colors it’s a sight to behold. Sadly we can only stay for two days so we made the best of it. The first day we took the car and drove the small quiet roads to the small city of San Gimignano. Some people call it the Manhattan of Tuscany, because of its medieval towers. From afar it does somewhat resemble a modern skyline. It was a nice place to stroll around in and take in the scenery. With the pretty weather and all the colors around us it does not really matter where in Tuscany we would go, it was…

    Beautiful buildings and scenery’s

    The great city of Polignano a Mare Before we left Puglia we wanted to visit Polignano a Mare. That supposed to be one of the “must see” towns in Puglia and we agreed with it.

Inside the town there was a center that was filled with restaurants and souvenir shops.…

In the morning there was a lot of mist in the mountains and therefore on our road. When we arrived it cleared up a little bit so we drove around and saw some magnificent views. Travel day At the same day as we visit the Meteora we also had to…

    Pisa and Florence

    As we left Aosta we drove a little more to the south-east and we settled in Empoli. This city lies nicely in between two major tourist destinations, Pisa and Florence. We booked a nice apartment close to the train station and could visit those two cities easily by train. Pisa We already had a feeling about this city that it was not going to be that impressive. As soon as we arrived and walked straight to the tower of Pisa we knew, we were going to be done here in five minutes. The cathedral was immensely crowded and even though you could enter for free, you still needed to pickup…
