So my vacation is unfortunately over and tomorrow I’m going back to work. The last week in Italy had been absolutely fantastic, the weather and food has been amazing! Last Monday we flew together with my boyfriends family to Pisa, where we spent the day sightseeing and adjusting to the heat. Your body is experiencing quite a shock if you are used to 15 degrees and then hop in to a toasty 35-40 degrees and full sun. But I really can’t complain, it was really nice to have some heat.
After our day in Pisa, the next destination was the wine yard where we were going to stay for four nights. The wineyard was in the middle of basically nowhere in between Pisa and Firenze in a small town called San Miniato. The wine yard was super cosy house with a few rooms and guest houses, pool and restaurant on top of a hill. The wine yard is family owned and they produce some nice redwines such as Chianti and Merlot, but also olive oil.
There was a lot of smaller villages near by and we had dinner in the neighbour village the first night. The restaurant was called 4 Gigli and the restaurant itself was stunning, it had a view over the mountains. The food was mediocre but the view made up for it.
