Driving Through Tuscany

While in Italy we took a drive through the mountains of Tuscany which was simply breathtaking yet extremely scary at parts. The roads can become very narrow especially while going up with no where to pull over if another car is making it's way down, needles to say i spent the first hour hiding my face, shouting and squirming as we leaned over the edge a few times.

During our drive we had the opportunity to see lovely looking homes surrounded my beautiful countryside

and spotting many vineyards, some that we stopped at.

Eventually finding a lovely place who offered to show us around and let us taste their wine for free.

This was the villa at the vineyard which was built in the 1600's

and many little towns full of sweet little cafes full of delicious food.
