Will and I are at an Internet cafe right now while Annette rests from our travels for today to Fisole, which is a little and very scenic town just out side of Florence. This was our last big trip/stop in Italy; tomorrow, we get on the train toward Mittenwald.
And, to top it all off, I figured out how to upload photos. I think. Anyway, these images are all gigantic– I don’t think this semi-ancient PC has any way for me to edit them down– so be aware that the links you click here will open big images. Oh, and I don’t have my guide book so I might have to correct some of the “facts” of what we are seeing later.
Okay, away we go:
- Picture of Roman Ruins Theater in Fisole Part if this is a new amplitheater, but part of it is Roman from around 100 BC or so.
- Beautiful hills around Fisole and Tuscany.
- Bell tower of the cool and relatively small church in Fisole. The tower is way out of proportion to the rest of the church.
- Will and Annette in front of Roman ruins. See, Fisole is actually a much older town than Florence. These are ruins of Roman baths and on this site, there are more ruins of the Etruscians, who predate the Romans. Old old stuff!
- Pretty views.
- Another pretty view, this one from the archeological museum we toured.
- Annette in a restaurant with a (you guessed it!) a view. I liked the food here better than Annette did, but I have to say that on the whole, my favorite meals have been made with stuff we have bought in the market and ate in our lovely apartment/hotel.
I tried to upload a bit of video I took with my little camera, but it didn’t seem to work. Oh well, maybe in Germany….
