Central Italy (2/7)


A friend invited us to stay at his holiday home in Umbria during June 2003.








Montepulciano is built on a steep hillside so many of the streets are on a significant incline.










At the top of Montepulciano is the town hall in the central piazza.











Here I am in front of a small fountain in the bright sunshine at Montepulciano.







Not every day was sight seeing. On Monday we drove to the beach near Viareggio on Italy's north-west coast. The water has to be warm to get me into it!









Behind the beach was a nature reserve where we saw many of these flowering yucca plants, a rare sight in England.
