A week in Tuscany

Here's a trip report of my recent holiday in small town Tuscany with my husband and friends. For those looking ideas outside of Florence, this may be of interest.

I wish I had some friends with a place in Tuscany!

Thanks for your trip report and photos. I am hoping to see some of those places next year when we go to Tuscany

Suja, Thanks for reading. Life and work piled up on me and got in the way. Maybe I will work on it this weekend for fun instead of working; I wasn't sure if anyone would still be interested.

@screen-name-taken : Thank you me too...once I start reading I can't stop..this is a dangerous forum for people who love to travel, you'll spend too much time online and then afterwards plot ways and means of getting to the places you read of

Suja, thank you, shukria, for your beautiful photos and descriptive captions!! I will be there --too briefly--in June. Arrezzo is now on the list of day trip "musts."
LOL re shopping and coffee stop for self-respecting tourists-:

You are all so funny. I can relate to the addiction problem, screen name taken; I really missed the forum while I was off working so much. I promise to finish the "parade float" trip report and will have another installment in a day or two.

There are a couple of monasteries you can stay in at St. Bernard Pass (shown in your first photo). St. Bernard, Simplon and Chateau Verdun.
