And these weren’t easy-to-visit towns all located on flat ground, but Medieval towns perched on the tops of hills, which meant we went up and down hills, up and down hills, up and (oh, I already mentioned that!)…all day, pant pant…pant!!! 😉
Yesterday, you see, we drove our two friends–the ones who are visiting from Cape Cod, U.S.A.–into the stunning countryside south of Florence…specifically, to Monteriggioni (a circular Medieval walled town built by the inhabitants of Siena in 1213), Siena (does Siena need an introduction? I don’t think so!), and finally San Gimignano (ditto!).
We had such a great time…and it was a glorious day, too (it rained today, so we really lucked out!).
As usual, I took a lot of photos…
I’ve selected just a few (from each town), which I hope you will enjoy.
By the way, if you want to read a brief description of each photo, just hover with your mouse over the image and, yes, a brief description will, or should!, appear… 🙂
