A little more than a month ago, my family and I spent a week in an villa outside of the Italian hill town of Montepulciano. This was a trip inspired by my mom's 60th birthday, fulfilling her dream of bringing us all together in an Italian villa. The experience of living in this villa, surrounded by ancient hillsides with ripe Italian grapes and bahh-ing sheep, was nothing short of fantastical.
As I really can't begin to express my awe of Italy, from the medieval hill towns, to the majestic cities, to ruins of the Roman Empire, I hope these photos help to help the story for me.
This is the first of several post from this experience, starting with this series, from our first days in the villa. Check in to see the next leg of the journey.
