Hello impromptu Euro trip. I recently got the privledge to explore beautiful Tuscany and I am so excited to share with you all these beautiful small cities, the gorgeous landscapes, and of course some styling ideas throughout. It was a quick one, very in and out, but trust me when I say any amount of time you can devote in Tuscany is worth it.
First up on the list is San Gimignano. Let me start off by saying, it is such a must to just kind of walk around and get lost. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site preserving 14 of its towers throughout wars and catastrophes, as well as it’s medieval architecture.
The towers of San Gimignano is the cities most known attribute, however there are many gorgeous churches such as the Collegiata, various museums such as the Museum of Torture (displaying methods of medieval tortue), as well as tons of beautiful art galleries, shops, and places to eat and drink. I didn’t get a chance this trip but I believe it is a must to climb the Torre Grossa and to visit the Rocca which has gorgeous views of the city and countryside.
Every piazza and side street gives you that authentic Italian feel. It is definitely a day well spent to just wander in and out of the streets and to see what you discover. It is the perfect destination to explore at your leisure without the pressures of a full itinerary of attractions.
Some things to note about San Gimignano is that they are known for their Vernaccia, a white wine grape so famous it was mentioned in Dantes Inerfno, as well as saffron. I loved popping into this specialty foods store and picked up an awesome souvenir as well.
There are so many beautiful art galleries to come across when walking through San Gimignano. Galleria Gagliardi was showcasing some beautiful pieces during this exhibit. I definitely recommend checking it out.

Plot twist, this was believe it or not a carry on only trip so I impressed even myself with how I packed. Name a more pinnacle and versatile summer outfit than a little white dress. I added a chunky blue statement necklace to add a pop of color and change it up. A necklace like that will do the trick to dress up almsot any outfit. These nude sandals also carried my way all throughout the trip. They just go with everything. If you are reading this in real time and are in the states, a look like this would also be a perfect festive look for July 4 weekend.
