The medieval Siena in black&white

This summer I made an Italian language course in Florence so I had the opportunity to visit many interesting cities in Tuscany and besides I learned Italian. First I would like to show you Siena in B&W. As I walked on the streets I could feel that the time has passed by. These streets and houses could be 700 years old, and this was amazing. The Dom of Siena is the most beautiful church I could see in Tuscany with its black and white marble architecture. Maybe that is why I choose this time the B&W effect for the whole city. I always wonder how the lack of colors can change the mood of a picture, and now I like the result. Hope you enjoy too!

 Cantuccini is a typical Tuscany twice-backed cake with almond.


Panpepato, another delicious cake, that was my favorite. 


See U next time with another beautiful Tuscany town.
