Hello and welcome to “My Travel in Tuscany” by Edoardo and Nicola. We are pleased to introduce you to our blog about the region where we are born. A place we love and we know really well. This is a blog about Tuscany, its food and wine, its traditions and its wonderful places to visit.
How all it started: a bit of history of My Travel in Tuscany Travel Blog
During one of our last journey we met a couple of guys from Los Angeles, Jeff and Michelle. They were so happy to know that we were Tuscans and they expressed the desire to visit our region one day.
Finally, last summer they came to visit us for a week and we spent all the time around showing them the beauty of Tuscany. We were produ to show them our native places: the castles of Lunigiana Valley, a beautiful but unknown area in the northern Tuscany, the marble quarries of Carrara, the long sandy beach of Versilia and Apuan Alps, the Etruscan Coast and the wine region of Bolgheri. Then we could not show them the most known villages of Volterra, San Gimignano, the city of Siena, Val d’Orcia and of course Florence.
One of these days, we had a break in Fosdinovo, a small village in Lunigiana famous for his medieval castle, enjoying some fresh cheese from a local shepherd’s farmhouse and a good glass of white Vermentino.
Our friends felt asleep under the shadow of a huge old oak tree and we two were admiring the valley, the coast and the sealine.
All at once Nicola smiled and said: “It is a shame that many people have never been here… breathing this fresh air, staring at these marvelous landscapes.
Edoardo closed his eyes feeling the air. He felt good while the sun was warming his tanned skin. He took another sip of wine and exclaimed: “You are right, we are so lucky to live in Tuscany! It is such a beautiful land, full of history, culture and art. To say nothing of the delicious food and wine”.
Some hours later, on the way back home while Edoardo was driving, Nicola was talking with our friends. They were so happy to have had the opportunity to visit all of these places, especially the little ones.
The reason why we open this blog
We have been friends since ages. Both of us have the passion for Tuscany, we love to travel, we are gluttonous of food and good wine and we like the old local traditions.
Thanks to this experience and our friend enthusiasm we thought that could be nice to start writing this blog, named “My Travel in Tuscany“, to give information and tips to everyone that wish to discover Tuscany and everything that this land has to offer.
