    The views of Tuscany were beautiful, they didn't seem real.

    I thought it was incredible to see the medieval towers so well erected after so many years, I thought I would find them in a deplorable state.

    The medieval architecture of the places we got to see made the tour much more beautiful than we thought it would be.
