ITALY | CAFFÈ GIUSTI RESTAURANT IN MONTECATINI ALTO.
My husband is from a little town in Tuscany called Montecatini-Terme. Famous for its thermal waters, it is considered one of the biggest “spa towns” in Italy.
Located at the highest point of Montecatini-Terme, right on top of a hill, is a small medieval village called Montecatini Alto, which offers a panoramic vista of Montecatini-Terme. To get there, you can either drive, hike up to the village, or take the Funicular railway. The latter dates back to the end of the 1800s but is still functional and fun. Our son is a big fan of it.

ITALY | ROSÉ AWAY IN SIENA’S PIAZZA DEL CAMPO, TUSCANY.
Siena Piazza del Campo is the heart of Siena and the precise meeting point of the three hills on which Siena is built. The venue was the main gathering square for major political and social events, hence its iconic status in Tuscany.
This historically significant spot hosts the bi-annual Palio di Siena horse race. Picture James Bond in the Quantum of Solace!
After sauntering through the cobbled alleyways of Siena, we love hanging around this exuberant Piazza to marvel at its architectural beauty. No wonder it is considered one of the most aesthetically pleasing squares in all of Europe’s renowned medieval squares.
The perfect spot to Rosé away on warm summer days. Read more
