The rest of our trip was just as injoyable as the first part! We were in Florence for three days and I defintely enjoyed all of the food and the weather was perfect! From Florence we went to San Giminagano and stayed at the cutest hotel right in the main square! There was some sort of midevil festival going on which was pretty interesting to watch. On our second day we took a wine tour through the Chianti region. It was absolutely beautiful and we tasted some great wines and met a fun couple from Australia! We ended up having dinner with them and had a blast. We spent one night in Siena which was nice. It rained however so it kinda gave us an excuse to be a little more mellow and rest up. We did however stay in an awesome place! It was an old montestary. It was absolutely beautiful! From Siena we went to Sorrento and spent a day in Capri. The grotto tour was not as cool as our Lagos grotto tour. It was a little hectic and long... very beautiful water and scenery though. We decided to go to Positano for a night because Jill really wanted to go to this restaurant she and her sister had gone too a few years ago. We again stayed at a great place that had an amazing veiw and a super nice balcony! We had dinner at La Tagliata, and it was definitely worth the trip! Such a fun place... WE never once saw a menu however had tons of food and more lemonchello! There was a 60th birthday being celebrated and the people involved were SO friendly! Didn't speak any english, but we all danced and had champagne and cake! It was too fun! The owner of the bar and his friend ended up driving us home on their scooters through the hills of Positano after the restaurant closed! It was quite an experience... All and all it was an awesome trip! Unfortunatly our last night Italy lost their eurocup match to Germany in a shootout, but we were happy we got to see all the games in the country! It was so fun!!! I can't wait to go back to Italy and am convinced I will be moving there! Erica got here the day after we got back so we have been laying at the beach and had a great night out in Lisbon last night! We head to Prague next week! Looking forward to it :)
