So we left Orvieto after trying to walk up the hill – IT WAS SO STEEP that it made La Grazie seem even so we gave up. Today we drove to Pienza on the way to Ambra – all in southern Tuscany. We went to Pienza because once again I wanted to try and find the famous zigzag road of pencil pine trees, which is in a lot of postcards. Of course we found several and actually managed to drive down one of them and take some photos – it does ...
We are sad to leave La Spezia, the people here are so nice and the place is very quiet and beautiful. However, we must start making our way down to Rome. The next stop is a little place inside a National Park called Tamalone.
The scenery on the way down is gentle rolling hills with plenty of agriculture. We are getting more and more olive trees and grape vines. We are definetly back in Italy. Our next place is a self catering place. We are met by ...

Surrounded by double layers fo walls, the walled city is shaped as a hexagon, with towers that are shaped like arrows at each corner. Since Grossetto ...
... for a very unique geography. There's a nice walkway along the shore of the lagoon which makes you forget the heat a bit... then finally I reach a charming little town, guarded by a thick wall, just a few blocks wide and water on three sides. Out in the lagoon is an old windmill all by itself--a nice unique backdrop for my video clip. The narrow pedestrian street through the middle of town does have a lot ...
