Old Italian Towns


I had a splendid time in Italy in August. It doesn't seem very long ago,
it's hard to believe it is October today. So as the rain lashes the window
and it is definitely a prelude to Autumn, here are some photos
of beautiful old Italian towns. There are so many in Tuscany, with
surrounding walls, porticos to enter, old doorways, windows and
magnificent architecture. The ones I liked best were not in the
guide book, but small and just perfect. Gambassi Termi was the nearest
town to where we were staying. My favourite was Colle di Val d'Elsa, with
its ramparts and gate which looked like something out of a fairy tale.
