Not to rub it in, but our view is pretty spectacular. Suddenly I heard a noise, and Melissa cried out, “There’s a pigeon in our room!” Thankfully, he left abruptly.
Do you have another destination coming up on this trip?
Arezzo! Tomorrow. Didn’t you go there? Any tips? We have reservations to see the Piero della Francesco frescoes! We’ll have lunch there. Any tips?
Beautiful photos, Sara. Sigh. Seems like you are having wonderful weather, though maybe a little chilly. Better that than rainy. Can’t wait to read about Arezzo, I love the PDF frescoes.
I’m really excited to see them. You couldn’t for years, but now they are restored. We have a reservation for a certain time to see them. Also, we stopped by to say hi to Aldo at La Pelle, where I bought my jacket, and he showed us photos of a recent trip he and his wife, Sonia, took to Arezzo. He also recommended Trattoria Saraceno, which is in the central area. Can’t wait! 3:51 am and I’m wide awake again. Every night. But then I can go back to sleep. Hope this isn’t a new trend. And I’ve always been a great sleeper.
Oh Sara–sigh…………..Lucy Honeychurch and Charlotte would be swooning over your “Room with a View”. Charlotte would probably have fits over the pigeon though :).
Oh, I love Forster and that book and movie. We saw shades of her dowager role when she played cousin Charlotte. Whenever we go out without a map and get turned around, we’re Lucy Honeychurch without her Baedeker guide.
Sara–Here’s wild coincidence—Steve and I were at Bar Lamar at Whole Foods tonight, where the wines of the week were all Italian, and the tv was on the Smithsonian Channel. The show was all about Florence and the Uffizi gallery–it was so fascinating. Although the sound was turned off, there were captions, so we could tell some of what was being shown. I felt like we were right there with you!! We are taping it right now–we went straight home to see if it would be on again, and it is!! There was also an entire part on truffles and truffle dogs.
