... the baptistery, museum and then lined up (it was an hours wait) for the Panorama dal facciatone. This was amazing and we could overlook the city from above the rooftops. We then were faced with the challenge of finding our way back to the Grom - the gelato shop we saw on our tour, and the Italian Grocer we wanted to visit to try pannaforte. This ended up a bit more difficult than anticipated as we found that just one wrong turn can send you way away from where you think you want to ...

... determined to see Cortona in Dad's honour.
The thing about Tuscany is that the towns are on hills. This makes them quaint and gives them lovely views. It also makes them a terrible driving destination.
