Tuscany

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.
