First Italian Pizza

Siena, Tuscany, Italy
11 Kudos
It has been about 4 days in Italy by the time we arrived in Siena. It was a smaller town, not as busy and touristy (at least during the time we went). It was wet and cold in March, by the time we reached the popular Piazza del Campo, a popular historic plaza feed with shops and restaurants and the famous Tower of Mangia. We spotted a small restaurants and decided to give it a try. I decided to go for a simple cheese pizza with a basil leave. The crust was light and fluffy, the sauce was tangy, it was delicious.
