Under the Tuscan Sky
Montepulciano, Itlay
June 19

After an unscheduled lay over in Bolognia, and an afternoon in Pisa to see the tower we have arrived at the most interesting point in our journey; Montepulciano. This 1300's era Tuscan hill town where cars are excluded built on a steep pitch with the streets about 10 feet wide. We are staying at a little pensione again. Imagine walking into a resturant from the Medici Empire and renting a small room upstairs for a few days. This area is renowned for White wine and Grappa, along with a strong cheese known as Pecarino. I don't know what I can say about this place except it seems that time has stood still for the past 7-800 years. The doorways and door knockers were so interesting I had to photograph several during our stay. Mere words cannot describe it. You just have to see the pictures and visit for your self.
