During our stay in Florence we decided we wanted to get out of town to explore the world-famous region of Tuscany.
From the many wine regions to the nearby medieval cities, there is definitely a lot to take in that is not normally accessible by public transportation.
We opted against doing private day tours in this city because we wanted the opportunity to go wherever we pleased on the quest for adventure.
So we did what any logical person who has never driven in Europe would do. We rented a car.
A smart car no less.
But our particular quest was not just to see the above sights that makes Tuscany famous. We had another goal- a goal to see the summer bloom of sunflowers.
