Quiet day today – we hung around Ambra doing financial business and organizing returning our car in a couple of weeks. We also walked down to Pratesi, which is a shoe outlet, and I bought some nice 'sandals' and a matching bag – both nice leather in tan. Good prices! Lunch was at home and after that we drove into Montevarchi – initially to Pradha again – to have a look if there was anything affordable with 50% ...
... buildings, land and information made us feel like we were experiencing something we haven’t known before – a secret life.
We left and managed to get back to see the boys playing their soccer match which was great. The stadium was amazing, with lights, great grounds and facilities. After Levane the Fiorentino team was playing – higher league, very purple and professional looking. Back home to Silivia & ...

We began our last morning in Rome with a brisk 20-minute, up-hill walk to the rental car pick-up with our luggage. We picked up our mini-van and thanks to Brian's driving and Claibourne's navigation, we made our way out of Rome. We had an unexpected interruption when we were stopped for 30 minutes on the autostrada due to an overturned orange truck. We finally made our way to the small town of Orvieto, on the border of Umbria and Tuscany.
