The last weekend in October saw me trekking it up in Tuscany, Italy. I set off to visit two of the prominent cities in the Region, Pisa and Florence. I started off by landing in Pisa and spending the rest of my time in Florence. It was such a beautiful experience, Tuscany definitely lives up to its reputation of being the birth place of Italian Renaissance. It was pretty much an open air museum with lessons on culture and Art each step of the way. Check out the highlights from my time in Tuscany.
