planes, trains, and automobiles volume III

Next we board an hour long bus from Florence and head to Siena! We spent a day and half here and loved every moment. Siena is as historic as Florence but much less touristy and really makes you feel like you're a foreigner in a foreign land (in a good way!) We were happy we took two days of our trip to visit this beautiful city.
{Siena, a walled city.... here is the entrance}

{the view from our hotel... we had our own balcony!}

{Il Campo! One of the highlights of our trip.... no words can describe this place}

{All the streets were like this... hilly & picturesque}

{We finally heard American voices and asked the lady to take our picture!}


{Does any view get better? We sat and stared at this for an hour at least!}

 {Lounging in Il Campo... on a crisp fall afternoon....}

{Taking it all in!}

We were sad to leave Siena but so excited to take the three and a half hour train ride to Cinque Terre. Stay tuned!!

Where in the world did you get your brown bomber jacket?!?!?! I adore it...

I think living in a walled city could be fun.
