Under the Tuscan sun, San Gimignano style

San Gimignano is a little medieval city nestled in the hills of Tuscany. If you’ve ever seen Tea with Mussolini, you’ve seen San Gimignano.

I’ve already posted this photo, but it’s one of my favorites of us. We had just hiked to the top of the lookout in San Gimignano, the clouds finally parted and we got a little sunshine. It was a great way to start our day trip.

Everywhere you turned was another breathtaking view. Case in point #1 (And Maria, will this work as your photo of an olive tree–see that one there on the right?):

Case in point #2 (can you imagine having this in your backyard?):

Love this view of the Tuscan hills. I feel like we’re looking out from a castle.

Much of the city looks the way it did 800 years ago. Just more tourists. ;)

And I feel like this next one could be a still frame from the movie Amelie.

And our trip to San Gimignano ended with this little guy, who was lounging on a patio when we walked by. Does anyone know what kind of dog this is? He was so sweet we’ve decided we have to get one!

  1. On a completely un-related to Italy note, I would just like to say that you have amazing hair.

    That is all. (:
