Scrapbook: The rolling hills of Siena

Relaxing break in Siena

For a relaxing break, we booked a weekend away in the countryside near to the town of Siena. It was a beautiful chateau and beautiful background with the rolling hills and endless green countryside and vineyards. The Friday evening we had a large feast of food with lots of Italian wine, which continued into Saturday which we spent wine tasting the local wines and cheeses. We lazed around and enjoyed the sunshine, each other's company and the peace. On the Sunday we were feeling cultural so we visited the town of Siena and saw the famous Piazza del Campo. It was a very relaxing day as we walked around the cobbled streets admiring the architecture of the buildings and eating authentic Italian ice cream! We were sad to go back home the next day and back to reality!
