Fiat 500

Emily Pinney

I LOVE snow but we're in the middle of a blizzard in Cambridge right now. I have a few friends who are on warm islands all over the globe and seem to be continuously posting to instagram. This is making me dream about my recent trip to Italy instead of the shoveling, which SHOULD be next on my list this morning. 

I thought I would share a little more of our trip with you (here is my previous post about the trip). It didn't take much convincing to get B on board to go on the Fiat 500 tour. This was so much fun! I recommended it for anyone who can drive a stick and loves all things vintage (including wine).

On this tour, you get to drive a vintage Fiat 500 around the hills of Tuscany.

The tour ended at a vineyard where we could take part in a wine tasting. The tasting was hosted in the wine cellar of the Villa Paggio Bello which dates back to the 1400s. The villa was the home of the ancient Florentine Acciaioli family -- and is now a Bed & Breakfast. I am looking forward to spending a few nights here the next time we visit Florence.

The wine was fantastic but I have to admit I was admiring the villa just as much as the wine.... Look at the thickness of those marble counters with matching marble on the kitchen table! LOVE.  I wasn't supposed to be in the room so you'll have to excuse my quick snap... but I think you get the idea of how lovely this kitchen was.

I loved seeing this old fresco they unearthed during renovations.  There are a few of these throughout the villa. So pretty!
