At the beginning of the week, the tour group had the opportunity to behold the beautiful city of Florence and its sister region of Tuscany. After taking copious pictures of the magnificent David by Michaelangelo as well as others of his unfinished works at the museum Accademia, we enjoyed the scenic route to San Giagnimiano and Siena. One student remarked that San Giagnimiano was like a step back in time with its narrow streets lined with cheese, jewelry, pottery, sculpture, wine, kitchen, and gelato shoppettes. Siena is home to the region's horse races in the famous Piazza del Campo. The half moon shaped plaza becomes a frequented park by locals and tourists where we enjoyed sunshine, pizza, fellowship, and indulgent amounts of gelati.
