Today we crossed a calendar perfect Tuscany landscape, with green hills crested with lines of cypress trees and stone farmhouses standing along the hilltops. We walked from Pirenza to enter San Quirico d'Orcia another walled village with an elegant 12th century church and a garden filled with modern statuary. From here we climbed a ridge to reach …
... come back this July and see the spectacle. We grabbed our obligatory gelato (the kids were disappointed with their Smurf flavor – I’m not really sure what Smurfs are supposed to taste like, but apparently not that), and we moved up to the duomo. It was another absolutely gorgeous edifice, if not as impressive as the one in Orvieto (the fašade at least). There was a large, and therefore loud, group of teenagers hanging out there, and we ...

Orvieto...we don't want to leave!

It is situated on a hill overlooking Orvieto to one side and the beautiful Umbrian hills and valleys to the other. We walked among the vineyards and enjoyed seeing the signs of spring along the road.
