Volterra and san gimignano
After spending the morning and afternoon in Montegrioggi and Sienna, we headed to the little town of Volterra for the evening.
As I said in my previous post, our trip to Volterra was totally inspired by the Twilight Movies, although its not where all of the scenes fro the movie were filmed.
And with its medieval streets situated on a hill and built from sienna (or cinnamon brown) stone, and red and white flags at half mast it didn't disappoint
It really is like going back in time
We strolled around the cobbled streets, picked up some gelato and found the Pinacoteca e museo civico (a medieval art museum) which was just gorgeous
And then we hopped in the car and headed to San Gimignano, another walled medieval city not far from Volterra
Taking in more views of the gorgeous countryside along the way
Much bigger and perhaps a little more touristy than Volterra, its still super pretty and definitely worth a stop on your Tuscan tour
San gimignano is flanked by blue flags at half mast everywhere... which really made the most incredible sight.
We left San Gimignano just as golden hour was hitting and we were begging tire of medieval streets and gelato
Which made for the most beautiful views over the Tuscan countryside on the drive back to the hotel
