Tuscany 2005

In late June and early July we headed to Tuscany for a couple weeks of vacation. Of course we took a few pictures of the country-side (and of Robert in the country-side). The photos and notes are broken into 9 parts that pretty much follow our itinerary:

Each of the photos should be a link to a larger version that should still fit in a standard browser window. If you want a still larger version of the photo, prepend "big_" to the file name: tuscany_05_97.jpg becomes big_tuscany_05_97.jpg.

    Our itinerary:
  • Arrive in Florence (Firenze) Sunday June 26
  • Lucca Monday June 27
  • Montecarlo Tuesday June 28 (the castle was closed)
