Over the past two weeks we visited several cities in Italy and while each had its perks, our stay at the

Borgo Santo Pietro

in Tuscany was the highlight. When I asked for honeymoon recommendations

here

, this was the one suggestion that I simply couldn't get out of my head. It was meant to be the relaxing (and certainly the most indulgent) part of our trip and when we left, I actually felt homesick for the place. We read a ton (I finished two books in four days), slept in, ate great food, met wonderful people, and deprogrammed. Here's a glimpse at how we spent our time at the villa.
