After visiting some Italian cities, my group went to a villa in Chianciano Terme. It was amazing to see the quiet little town after the busy streets of Rome and the overwhelming buildings in Florence. There were no other tourists here. All we saw were tiny streets, where cars struggled to get through. Occasionally there was a grandmother on a balcony or some people having a coffee in the café. From the town on the hill we had amazing views over the Tuscan countryside. “This is nothing” said my Italian friend. To me it was quite something, don’t you think?
