Back to Florence and Around Tuscany

I've tried not to go back many places, but when there is more to see, why not? So some friends were going up to Florence and I decided to join and see more. This included a road trip to Volterra and San Gimignano. Fun fact, Volterra has NOTHING to do with the Twilight series, but it does have an Etruscan museum and a gorgeous church. 

An Etruscan urn notable for its fine terra cotta work. 

Ombra della Sera, the shadow of the evening, ancient Etruscan art. 

Closest thing to anything vampire. 

Ceiling of the church. 

View from Volterra. 

Outside San Gimignano, the Manhattan of Tuscany. There used to be over 80 Towers, now only 14. 

The ancient wall around San Gimignano. 
View from the top of the tower in San Gimignano. 

Selfie at the top of the tower of course. 

We climbed to the top of the Duomo in Florence, the view from the top was AMAZING. 

What I had to do again... Florentine steak at Gobbi 13.
