Pitigliano by day...
The beautiful town vista. Geez they could build. This - the old part of town - was constructed centuries ago.
- Exploring the township of Pitigliano
- Family visits in Pitigliano and San Valentino
- Trying to stay dry
- Catching up with family
- Enjoying the slow paced friendliness of the local shopkeepers
- A vast contrast to Rome - when you enter a shop in Pitigliano (or any of the small Tuscan towns) it is mandatory to have some small talk. This is true even if you are the only one in the store or if there is a queue. When we went to the fruit shop - we were third in line to be serrved - and there were others queuing up behind us. We all had to wait as the person being served updated the fruit man on how her mother was and whether her leg was better etc.
