How to have a fun vacation (Tuscany edition)

Hop on a train at La Spezia and visit Cinqueterre towns Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso.

In Florence visit the Gallery Uffizi (where Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" is on display) and experience Obica mozzarella bar. Yes, a mozzarella bar.

Rent a car and drive along the SR222 also known as "Chianti Road".

Make room in your busy schedule for a two-hour long meal at Osteria Le Logge in Siena.

Book a wine tasting tour at Castiglion del Bosco (their Brunello is my favorite).

Stop by "La Bottega del Sale" in San Gimignano and have a nice talk with photographer Duccio Nucci.
