PIENZA IN 50 PICTURES

PIENZA IN 50 PICTURES

pienza in 50 pictures is what i saw during our short stay in town. as in all the other medieval towns, we parked outside the city walls and walked on. this is another one of those little towns that look like a film set: beautiful and picturesque. one of the vantage points just outside the city...
SAN QUIRICO DORCIA IN 30 PICTURES

SAN QUIRICO DORCIA IN 30 PICTURES

san quirico dorcia in 30 pictures is a short stop we made on our way from siena to pienza and then arezzo. as i was saying yesterday, the rolling hills of tuscay were part of the destination, that’s why you’re seeing so much of them. our stop in san quirico d’orcia was short but great....
SIENA IN 50 PICTURES

SIENA IN 50 PICTURES

siena in 50 pictures is the shots i could take of during my short stay. our airbnb was slightly outside the city walls so we had to walk to the city center. this is one of the entrances to the city center but we took the escalators for a shortcut. we were both here before...
SAN GIMIGNANO IN 50 PICTURES

SAN GIMIGNANO IN 50 PICTURES

san gimignano in 50 pictures is my impression of this beautiful tuscan town. it was not easy to decide upon our tuscan itinerary. we wanted to include as much as possible but we also had to leave some places out. but san gimignano made the cut: 1. its historic center is a unesco heritage site and 2....

FLORENCE IN 100 PICTURES PART 2

florence in 100 pictures part 2 is the rest of the time i spent in town. this is downtown, on this side of the arno river. this is a favourite spot of mine, the garden of an art gallery. we’re crossing the river to get to oltrarno, florence’s south bank. we started climbing up because we’re going...
FLORENCE IN 100 PICTURES PART 1

FLORENCE IN 100 PICTURES PART 1

florence in 100 pictures part 1 is my rather casual reunion with this beautiful place. our airbnb had a central location so we started each day by passing by the duomo. la piazza della signoria was this time around dominated by 2 jan fabre‘s pieces. there were two places where his work was exhibited and i...
LUCCA IN 30 PICTURES

LUCCA IN 30 PICTURES

lucca in 30 pictures is the pics i took during the short couple of hours we spent in this cute little tuscan town. we parked the car outside the city walls and we walked inside. we stayed only for a short while and that’s because lucca was not necessarily on the to-do list. but it...

TORINO IN 50 PICTURES

torino in 50 pictures is what i could see during our short stay. below, you have two pics from our turinese loft. i loved it: relaxed, amazing pressure shower and a tiny yard where i could watch the airplanes fly over me at night. we used airbnb exclusively this time around and i must say that...

SEPTEMBER 2016 FINDS
