    The Italian railway system, run by Trenitalia, is connected with the rest of the European rail system so it is easy to reach Tuscany from locations across Europe and Italy.

    Overnight hauls give you the possibility to book a couchette (cuccetta) on most international trains. It is always advisable, and sometimes required, to book seats on international trains to and from Italy.

    The main route that passes through Tuscany is through Florence, on the Bologna-Rome line via Arezzo. Another line from Rome hugs the Tyrrhenian sea coast and passes through Grosseto, Livorno, Pisa, Viareggio and on along the coast on its way to La Spezia and Genoa (in Liguria).

    If you are coming to Tuscany from outside Italy, then it is important to know that the main points of entry into Italy are:
        Mont Blanc tunnel from France at Chamonix which connects to the A5 for Turin and Milan
        Grand St. Bernard tunnel from Switzerland which also connects to the A5
        Brenner Pass from Austria which connects to the A22 to Bologna

    Italy has a good system of highways; you can find more information on the official website of the company that manages the system, Autostrade. A visit to this site is a must if you're planning to travel by car throughout Italy as it has real time information on road/traffic conditions and driving directions.

    Tuscany has two international airports, the Galileo Galilei International Airport in Pisa and Amerigo Vespucci Airport, also known as Peretola, in Florence. Located only 80 km apart, the Pisa airport is the larger of the two airports.

    Both airports handle flights to major European cities. Pisa handles the bulk of European scheduled flights so it might be easier to find flights into Pisa.

    Direct flights from North America are generally more expensive than stopover routes somewhere else in Europe.
    More affordable fares can be had if one flies non-stop to a major European city such as London or Paris and then takes a Ryan Air (low-fare European airline) flight direct to Pisa.

    Siena is likely Italy's loveliest medieval city, and a trip worth making even if you are in Tuscany for just a few days.
    Siena's heart is its central piazza known as Il Campo, known worldwide for the famous Palio run here, a horse race run around the piazza two times every summer. Movie audiences worldwide can see Siena and the Palio in the James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace.
    Siena is said to have been founded by Senius, son of Remus, one of the two legendary founders of Rome thus Siena's emblem is the she-wolf who suckled Remus and Romulus - you'll find many statues throughout the city.
    The city sits over three hills with its heart the huge piazza del Campo, where the Roman forum used to be. Rebuilt during the rule of the Council of Nine, a quasi-democratic group from 1287 to 1355, the nine sections of the fan-like brick pavement of the piazza represent the council and symbolizes the Madonna's cloak which shelters Siena.

    Almond milk is commonly found in Sicily where it is drunk very cold in the Spring and around Easter time. It was likely to have been invented in a Sicilian monastery and then spread across the island as a drink that was refreshing and full of energy.

    Almonds were introduced to Sicily more than 2,000 years ago by the Phoenicians who brought them directly from Asia. At the time, almonds were eaten as fruit to be used as medicine or in dessert recipes. It wasn’t until the Arabs arrived in Sicily that almonds became the foundation of Sicilian pastries.

    The Arabs taught the Sicilians to mix almonds with eggs and honey to make a base for many sweets and pastries. It should come as no surprise that almonds have been grown across the island for centuries. Up until a hundred years ago, the province of Agrigento was the biggest almond producer in the world. Nowadays, if you visit Siracusa in early spring, you will be surrounded by rosy white clouds of almond trees in bloom.

I climbed up a plethora of stairs, rocks, and all for what? All to see the 5 stunning villages of the Cinque Terre; Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarolo, and Riomaggiore!

    My mind can convince my body of anything and everything. Such as – No, you don’t need to buy the Cinque Terre train card – we’ll hike it all – no problem. Now, I love a good hike – I grew up outdoors, and hiking is a great way to explore. But I highly dislike stairs. I don’t get on the stairmaster in a gym for a reason. Stairs are tedious – they hurt my legs, my butt, and every other part of me with each and every step. Worse – I hate uneven stairs; I cannot manage to sustain a moderated pace. Every step is different. And without railings – THE Worst.
