Continuing on with Amanda & Tim’s Italy trip, their next stop was a small town in Tuscany. After braving the crowds in Florence, the town of Lucca was a pleasant change. It’s also home to their favorite pizza spot of the trip, Pizzeria da Felice, a delicious family-run place where all the locals go. They also loved Ristorante Giglio (where they apparently have the BEST house red) & Trattoria da Giulio (where the Tagliatelle Arrabiata was to die for!).
In Lucca, they took a bike ride to the top of the medieval wall that surrounds the city, where they spent the day lounging in the beautiful park at the top of the wall.
Following Lucca, Amanda & Tim headed to San Gimignano where they found some “mind-blowing” gelato at Gelateria di Piazza & then made their way to Siena for a delicious dinner & some nighttime exploring.
Next they made their way to the tiny town of Saturnia. They stayed at Terme di Saturnia, a beautiful spa resort. Just down the street from their hotel, Tim & Amanda found an area where water gushes into a large natural pool, flowing over a waterfall & down to a series of natural pools carved in the rock. They described it as “strange & fascinating all at the same time.” But do keep in mind that the springs have a pretty strong sulphur smell that takes some getting used to….
Amanda & Tim clearly had such a blast in Tuscany, but we are really in for a treat with their next destination, the Amalfi Coast! Check back this week for all the dreamy details!
