Reunion Vacation in Italy
Route: Ponte Vecchio, Florence, Italy
We are 3 friends from the Pacific Northwest who met 10 years ago as roommates studying abroad in Siena, Italy. We decided to go on a reunion trip back to Tuscany visiting Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca, and finally Florence. We also spent about 4 days in Capri which was amazing. The whole trip was incredible, but my favorite memories were taking a cooking class at a chef’s home in the hills of Tuscany and spending the day on a boat tour of Capri and the Amalfi Coast, swimming in the sea, and eating fresh caught fish for lunch.
Take a cooking class with Montese Cooking Experience located just outside of San Gimignano. If you are able to take a private boat tour of Capri or the Amalfi Coast I highly recommend it. It was such a personal and enjoyable experience. We ate so much great food! Pulalli Wine Bar and Ristorante Panorama in Capri were amazing. Ristorante Da Teresa on the Amalfi Coast, only accessible by boat, had the most delicious fresh caught fish and homemade pasta. In Florence, we had a delicious lunch at La Bussola (sprinkle their Margherita pizza with the chili oil!). The bistecca alla fiorentina at Osteria Pepó was excellent.
