La Dolce Vita: Part III

by Thursday, August 13, 2015

Ready for the last (and my personal favorite) part of my roadtrip to Italy??

This time it’s all about Siena (Tuscany) and Lake Como. ENJOY, and remember:

STOP 3: FIRENZE, Italy (21-24 July)

Siena, Italy

  • Siena is a small Tuscan hill town that has been declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site. The historic centre is a-ma-zing: the most beautiful piazza’s, the duomo,..
  • I was especially impressed by the Siena Duomo -> I’ve never seen such elaborate architecture
  • The Piazza del Campo is one of Europe’s prettiest squares, where twice a year the Palio di Siena (a horse race) is held.
  • MUST DO: take a stroll in the small streets of Siena and be surprised by the beauty that awaits you around each corner
  • MUST DO: when you drive back to Firenze, like we did, don’t use the highway! Use the roads in the hills and really discover the beauty of Tuscany -> This drive was the highlight of our entire roadtrip!!

  • Can’t find a single negative thing 😀

    STOP 5: Lake Como, Italy (24-25 July)

  • The view, ofcourse. It’s the perfect end to a perfect trip. We started with a lake, and now we are ending with one.
  • We only saw the lake in the morning and at night, since this was just a stop on the looong drive home. I can’t imagine its beauty during the day!!
  • MUST EAT: Crotto dei Pescatori (Lezzeno), an amazing Italian restaurant right at the lake!

  • It’s not easy to reach your hotel. The streets around the lake are a real challenge (small smaller smallest).THAT’S ALL!

    I hope you liked reading about my trip and I inspired you for your future trips!
