Our Trip to Florence, Italy

By now, through my blog series focusing on my trip to Europe last fall, you’ve seen almost all of mine and Andry’s journey. For the second to last city of our vacation, we stayed in Florence, Italy for two days. Don’t be fooled by the fact that I didn’t take nearly as many photos in Florence as the other cities we visited. Andry and I actually had our favorite experience of the entire trip in Florence. Our stay in this city was focused on one thing: wine.

Those who know me personally, know that I’m really interested in wine. Of course, I love it for the taste, but I also love learning about wine, how its grown, where different wines come from, and how its made. A dream of mine is to someday own a vineyard and winery. So while we were in Italy, Andry and I took a full day private wine tour of Tuscany. We had a guided tour, just the two of us and our guide, around the Italian countryside. We visited three different wineries, toured the vineyards, met the winery owners, and got to see how the wine was made. We learned all about the wine industry in Italy, and did so many tastings. By the end of the tour, we were quizzed with a blind tasting of different wines, and we were both able to get 100% of the wines correct based on the taste and smell. Andry and I did a smilier tour when we were in California, but the wine in Italy is very different. I would love to do another wine tour in France. I can’t wait for the day we can return to Europe.

The Tuscany countryside would be the most beautiful and romantic place for a destination wedding or elopement! Check out a few of my favorite photos from Florence, Italy!
