1. The medieval San Gimignano
Once an Italian friend told me that this small town is one of the most beautiful towns in Tuscany, and I agree with her. It looks like a magical fantasy setting, especially at night when the stone towers, walls, and houses seem even more lost in time.
2. Etruscan tombs.
Which, according to my son, look like the entry to the lost city of Ouroboros in Ninjago. 🙂
3. A delicious candy made of milk powder.
These sweets made of milk powder, honey and yogurt were my main fuel in my Tuscany tours.
4. Decorative objects made of Alabaster.
Alabaster, a white soft stone from Tuscany, is so beautiful white I couldn’t resist buying decoration objects made of them.
5. The Pisa Tower does justice to its fame.
I had seen pictures of it before like everybody else, but to see it live is still an amazing, surprising and breathtakingly experience. It was much more beautiful than I expected.
6. The Devil’s Bridge
Also called The Bridge of Mary Magdalene, it has the classic medieval “hunchback” design, but what makes it different (according to the prospect from the Borgo a Mozzano Comune) is its asymmetrical arches and the gravity-defying central arc.
