our first stop on our honeymoon was tuscany. just looking at these photos makes me want to go back already! we were both pretty exhausted from all of the excitement and craziness leading up to our wedding so we wanted to go somewhere relaxing to start off our trip. we stayed in petroio, a quaint little village about an hour outside of siena, at a villa called palazzo brandano. i can’t say enough good things about that place…we experienced the most amazing service here of our entire trip! the hotel manager drove us around tuscany since we didn’t have a car and made sure we were well taken care of on our honeymoon. tuscany was just beautiful at this time of year with its rolling hills, vineyards, orange and yellow leaves, and gorgeous sunsets. i am really glad we went in the fall when there are not as many tourists and everything is less crowded! we explored pienza and montepulciano while we were there, ate delicious food, and took a lot of long walks everywhere our legs could take us. the roads are so tiny and narrow and i just have a major thing for cobblestone streets!! it makes every city just so unbelievably charming. i couldn’t get enough of it! up next: cinque terre.
