Cominciamo la nostra passaggiata: Sylvia guida
Looking back on Montepulciano, as it must have looked in Middle Ages
I love this view with San Biagio nestled below on the right
Sylvia e Franki
Il nostro gruppo: with Sylvia, Zoe (16), Sarah (Franki)
After following an ancient Roman path, we approach Montefollonico from this back porta
Defensive tower: Montefollonico, unlike MP, never conquered by Florence
Looking down the street through the back gate
La sirena, an old pagan symbol, at the top of a Catholic Church
Sylvia e una guida marviglosa! Spiega l’arte
The window on the left is Romanesque, on the right Gothic. The arch shapes vary along the top, and the figures are: umani, animale, e pianti: tutto vita ‘nel mondo.
This was my path to meet Sandra and Kurt for cena at La Grotta.
Sandra and Kurt at La Grotta: beautiful view of San Biagio as it grew dark, but everyone so quiet, we ended up almost whispering!
