Tuscany region of Italy

Our six nights in the Tuscan countryside were spent visiting small towns such as San Gimignano, Siena, and Castellina. It was beautiful seeing the rolling countryside with all of the vineyards and olive trees. We stayed at a bed and breakfast with a swimming pool- which I think was the highlight of the trip for the girls. We ate wonderful food and had some very good wine as well. In addition, we had Gelato during our time in Italy, and of course I had to include a picture of just one of the hundreds of gelato stands we saw. YUMMY!!!! :)

Mark insisted that we spend one afternoon and drive the two hours to Pisa to actually see the leaning tower. It was rather funny to see all the people taking pictures of each other pretending to hold up the tower. There's really nothing else to see in Pisa except the tower- but there were sure a lot of tourists! I guess they were all just like us and wanted to say that they actually saw the tower in person.
