On one November weekend we decided to go to Tuscany, visiting the medieval towns of San Gimignano and Siena. While the rest of Italy was soaking in rain, the weather forecast was more optimistic for this part of the country.

As usual I will not report all my trip, writing a long text. My intention is to give you some basic info that will be useful in case you want to follow my steps. You can ask me any other questions about this weekend in Tuscany, leaving a comment here. And, many of these spots are already featured on my website, in the photoshoot from the wedding in Tuscany of Svetlana and Vassily.
