To Tuscany

This morning, we got off the ship in Civitavecchia, rode the local bus to the car rental, and then drove north towards Tuscany.  We passed through tiny town after tiny town as we got further and further out.  We stopped along the way to check out some Etruscan tombs from 700 BC.

The scenery around was just amazing!

We kept on driving until we got into the Chianti region, and then into the little town of Greve.  We found a market, got stocked up and headed up into the hills to our villa in Greve. It’s a beautiful old stone house with its own vineyard and olive grove.  The views from every room are unbelievable.  This is the backyard.

From the entry…

We had a nice relaxed dinner and are just having a mellow night.  We head to Florence tomorrow for the Accademia and Uffizi museums.  We are all so excited to go to Florence for the first time!
