Tuscany

Location: Italy

View from the Duomo. Who knew a sea of orange rooves could look so gorgeous.

Spent a few days in Florence. We loved the real version of this in the Accademia. David, however, was the most breathtaking sculpture we have seen. Except for one.

23 Apr 2009, 2:30AM

Captivating. View of the Duomo from some hill. Heard many Americans whingeing on the walk up, as they evidently have never had to walk to see a view in their lives. Aussies scoot past cockily and then end up panting just as much.

Here it is. Best sculpture ever. Baccus, in the Palazzo Pitti, the most obscenely opulent place we have seen.

Headed to Lucca for a few days. Most wonderful, favourite, possible future home, town of the trip. Very small, little to do except wander....

23 Apr 2009, 6:01PM

Ok, we were pretty impressed with the Duomo.

25 Apr 2009, 10:19PM

Enormous walls surrounding Lucca.

...and drink beer like this fellow. Good on him. Oh, there was a flower festival as well. Great. Thankfully it rained the next day so Lavinia couldn't drag us there for a return visit.

Cathedra at Siena, our next stop.

26 Apr 2009, 4:37AM

Picnicking above the wall. Common dinner in Italy has been wild boar sausage, bread and wine.

28 Apr 2009, 11:21PM

We spent our time wandering the streets and eating osso bucco. Siena possibly best food of Italy, particularly fresh fruit and vegetables. Or maybe they just tasted good because we haven't eaten them in some time.

The interior was magnificent. Home of St Catherine, who, in spite of writing reams of letters to the Pope and other dignitaries, is considered by many to have been illiterate. Hmmm.
