Our party that consisted of eight adults and seven kids had been living in the countryside outside of San Gimignano for a week. We had been on the go and running 100 miles per hour from the moment we landed in Italy. We needed a day of rest, and this Easter was the perfect spring day to take a break and slow down.
The day started by celebrating mass at the Duomo or Collegiate Church in San Gimignano. I didn't understand a word of it because it was in Italian. That didn't matter as I found myself wandering about in awe at this magnificent place that dated back to the early 2nd century. You can get a history of the historic Duomo by clicking here. It's also a church you can/will visit on our Total Tuscany Experience.
Off and running!
This picture is what got me thinking about writing this post. What makes Tuscany so memorable? Is it the stunning landscapes? Is it the magnificent hilltop towns that take you back in history? Or is the wine and food made with fresh, season ingredients? The answer is all of the above. But for me, my memories and the reason I keep going back is for the people. Sharing moments in time with friends, family, and new acquaintances.
