Andiamo (let's go) to Pisa and Orvieto!

I realize this is not the greatest picture in the world of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. However, it was the best I could do under the conditions!

Yep. Still leaning.

Here are beautiful olive groves along the way to Orvieto

Orvieto is charming. It is a town carved into a "mountain." I would go back here in a heart beat.

While in Orvieto, we had lunch at a wonderful restaurant in a grotto. The truffle pasta might have been ONE of my favorite dishes!

Was there anywhere you wouldn't go back in a heartbeat?

Is this the grotto you wanted to live in?

Yes this is the place.

And you are right: I would to back to all of it in a heartbeat!

It looks lovely! The photo of the town looks very picturesque.

I love your unique picture of the leaning tower! That was a rare opportunity to photo it at night. Mine all look touristy compared to this! I think I must have missed Orvieto, it looks lovely...next time...
