    On to Tuscany!

    September 19, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    We started our day in Rivotella, the town where Linda's maternal grandfather was born. Linda took a photo of gray Lake Garda. We then took a long drive to Creti in Tuscany, where we will stay for four nights. The Italian drivers all think they are Mario Andretti, but they appear to be consistent about it. We did some shopping after the long drive and made some salmon and salad for dinner. Touring Tuscany tomorrow.Read more

    Cortona

    September 21, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Cortona is the walled city made famous by the book and movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" (with the ever homely Diane Lane). We didn't see Diane, but did stroll the streets and had an opportunity to hike up to the Church of Santa Margherita (the path leading to the church is captured in a couple of today's pics.) Beautiful day in the low 70's and sunshine. We also spent some time in Foiano, where we sought out another gelato shop. Ay caramba!Read more

    Lois & I were in Cortona in 2001. Nothing has changed. We stopped in a restaurant for dinner and had a Tuscan steak. Prepared like Nono did on the BBQ. Best steak I ever had. Also we sat across from the “This Old House” stars Norm and Steve. They were taking about rehabbing a house in Cortona. It didn’t happen.

    Touring Tuscany

    September 20, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    On Wednesday we took a private scenery/wine/cheese tour of the immediate Tuscan area. Beautiful rolling hills, somewhat reminiscent of California. It's a bit drier than Asolo where everything was still green. Great wine tour today along with the best gelato we have found - in the small village of Lucignano.Read more

    Gray day at Lake Garda

    September 18, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Linda's Nonno was born in a town near Lake Garda in northern Italy, so we made sure to stay in the area for the day. Sorry to say that we had a wet gray day to ride the ferry to Sirmione from Desenzano. But we had fun in Sirmione. This must be the gelato capital of Italy. The shops are thicker than Starbucks in Seattle.Read more
