Trip Report Trip Report, short version

This is a trip report of my stay in Italy during May 2016.


I felt at home while in Florence. Florence turns out to be by far the most walkable city I have ever been to! My most favorite part of it was the ability to walk/run by the Arno river! The food scene was very competitive too! I had my first (and probably last) experience of eating at a 3* michelin rated restaurant. It seemed like the higher the stars get the smaller the portions become and the cuter the servers get :-)


Siena was beautiful as well. Most of all I enjoyed exploring the city with a professional photographer! In the chianti area, I had my first wine tasting ever! It was infact the first time ever I had red wine in my life! I enjoyed it and tolerated it very well...With a private driver I also visited the other country sides such as San gimignano, montelcino, and pienza!


While in Italy, I did not have a single bite of Pizza or pasta but instead I had gelato every day and sometimes twice a day!!!
