A small, walled medieval walled town and a Unesco site, San Gimignano was next on our list. It was said to be very touristy and I guess it was, but I still enjoyed our visit there. It once had forty towers but is now down to fourteen.
We found a great place to eat and had some of the very good local white wine. You know the book, and now film, Eat, Pray, Love? I could write one called Eat, Eat, Eat because I did a lot of it in Italy.
The view from the window by our table. Isn’t it fabulous? I just loved Tuscany. I found it much greener than Provence and packed with hills. Provence has hills but there seem to be more flat areas in between the perched villages and many valleys.
Maurice had this good looking boar stew with polenta. In this restaurant, and many others, the people working there took one look at Maurice and started speaking in French to him. He doesn’t look that different from the Italian to me but what do I know.
