Also in preparation for the trip I'm on, I delved into my Tuscany archives and discovered a photo of this remote roadway. In between the two hills is a farmhouse that I've stayed in twice, so re-visiting this location was a sweet treat indeed. I love the rustic and back country feel of this particular region which is far away from the madding crowds of Florence and Sienna. We packed our art supplies on our backs and tromped up and down this road more than once and I have a treasure trove of paintings and photos as a result. You can now be an armchair traveler along with me as we amble along at a snail's pace, reveling in the unspoiled beauty of this authentic and ancient faraway land.
