One of the highlights of the trip was spending the day with our friends who are stationed in Italy. They were kind enough to spend the day driving us around Tuscany. We had planned to visit two vineyards and a market in Greve in Chianti. As we walked around one of the vineyards I told them about this amazing winery my husband and I had gone to when we were in Florence last. On a whim we looked up how far away it was and it turned out to only be 15 minutes from us! I'm not really sure why I hadn't looked it up before, because I've thought about this winery often and always dreamed of one day ordering a case of wine from them. Our visit to their vineyard, Solatione, turned out to be the highlight of the day and eclipsed all the other vineyards we'd seen. I was glad that my amazing memories of it weren't overhyped.
It was a very different trip (I probably took as many pictures of Emma eating as I did of the Duomo), but a memorable one for sure.
