Back Home in California

See my 2017 Blog

My three months in Montepulciano with 
friends and family could
not have been more perfect.

The gardens and apartment shown here
are at the Politian Apartments where I lived
for three months in the Green Tea unit.
I loved it, as did my family and friends.

The apartment owners, brother and sister
Maria and Giacomo Stuart were welcoming,
friendly, and helpful
whatever my needs.

Last Day in Italy..Florence

Views from my hotel window

Views from the pool and bar on terrace

View from the bathroom

Sunflower Fields and Cortona

 Cortona in the distance

Thank goodness for 2 of these
escalators to get us up to Cortona
or according to Diane, good that they
were moving

Giacomo Stuart recommended Osteria Del Teatro restaurant in Cortona,
so Diane, another resident of Politian apartments, and I 
went after seeing the sunflower fields.
We didn't visit all those churches shown.
