Wednesdays in Italy

With a little over 5 weeks to go we'll be flying into Rome Airport, picking up the Citroen C4 and driving to Gaioli in Tuscany. Last visit was 2006 when we stayed a week in Monticchiello. The hilltop village sits high overlooking the valley with Pienza in the distance. To the east is Montipulciano and to the west is Montalcino.

 I guess you'd call that - "The Full Monty".

The only entrance to Monticchiello
Pienza and a Busker playing a touch guitar - something I'd never seen before.
The main Piazza of Montalcino - home of the Brunello fine wine.
The early morning mist from Montalcino
The road leading from Monticchiello


  1. Lovely!! Haven't been to Italy in years. Must fix that sometime....

  2. N and A - Don't leave it too long


Love to get feedback so no reason to be shy - have your say.
