I had visions of visiting Cortona (where Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet was filmed) and taking a drive through Chianti today, but about as far as we got was Asciano for an ice-cream. We think it's probably the best pistachio in Italy, so we were able to convince the children to get into the car again with the promise that we wouldn't be walking any further than the gelato shop! It WAS hard to drag ourselves away from the pool though.
Isabel and I were rewarded for our effort when we stopped in at a little boutique on the way to the gelateria. We found that Roman green suits us nearly as well as it did the Roman women. ( I shouldn't have bothered traipsing around Florence for an hour yesterday.......)
I am not quite ready to pack the bags again, but we're looking forward to meeting up with my friend Silvia and her children in Cervia tomorrow.
