Our Italian 3 week road trip is drawing close to the end. After visiting numerous Tuscan hilltowns we made a loop along the Maremma Coast line. We drove along the seacoast in a very remote area and Italian roadsigns are not my strong suit. I think we ended up on a road only meant for donkeys. The boys and I have been off-roading many times, but this was Jane's first experience. Our little Fiat did fine and we were both glad to get back to a paved road. After that we headed back up into the hills of the Maremma region of Tuscany. The Roman Terme (Hot Spring) of Saturnia was a highlight and we stayed in a family-run B&B nearby for several days. Yesterday we hiked to the top of Monte Amiata, the highest point in Tuscany. It is a ski resort in the winter and now is a lovely forest-topped mountain that was a pleasant, cool hike. We are both amazed at how strong we are compared to when we left in January. When we get to the boat on Friday I will be able to update our hopeful weight loss stats.
