Tuscany, Italy's wine country.
Day 4: Montepulciano and Abbazia Abbey
On Saturday, 27th of April we visited two places or attractions:
the town of Montepulciano and the Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore
First, the hilltop town of Montepulciano.
Street scenes on our way to the wine cellar.
Street scenes in Montepulciano.
One of the things we had to get used to
while tour walking in Tuscany was the sharing of streets with
vehicular traffic -- including busses! I tried to catch a vehicle
surrounded by pedestrians but no luck. Every time saw a potential
winner in photos of this type, somebody's head was in the way, or
it was too far away, or whatever. Oh well, that's one reason why
one needs to visit the world in person as photos, especially ones taken
by amateurs like me, just won't tell the whole story.
