Pino's Tuscany

Today we had the most fun. We went on a tour of the countryside with Pino~ our personal guide. Pienza is my newest favoritists town. It is a charming combination of old and new. The views of the hills of Tuscany from the city wall are amazing!


Pino is charming and funny. He knows everything about his beloved Italy, and is happy to share it. He knows so much about the wine and olives in this area, and he kept us entertained. We nearly walked ourselves to death up and down the streets of Montepulciano. The weather has been perfect!





We went on a tour of the wineries and the Tuscan countryside. After enough wine tasting~ I'm just glad I wasn't doing the driving!

Here I am in the Tuscan country, dealing with a dial up internet and a 8 minute limit... now that is a challenge.

Ciao y'all,

Sandi
