Montepulcino

Wonderful views and great history

sunny 27 °C

Dear All
Went to Montepulcino today which was built in Etruscan times and pre dates the Romans. Apparently it was built around 500BC and a lot of it is still standing as is today. We also had a look at the local church called San Biangio which was built in the 1450,s. Beautiful architecture and paintings. We had a picnic right next to the Church.

We also went to a town called Pirenze was was the family home of Pope Pius 11. Sights sounds all terrific. Bought a few little trinkets.

Anyway, this 16th century computer is so slow and keeps on dropping out so I,m going to close off for now.

Ciao Ciao

Hi Guys,
Been following your posts and it feels like we have been on a mini holiday ourselves.The photos are great, it is hard to imagine the workmanship that has gone into many of those landmarks. Really puts modern architecture to shame in many ways. Good to see you have done some eating, drinking and most importantly (Jenni) shopping, you have most probably doubled the EU's GDP in the last couple of weeks. Bryan just make sure you wear that Rado watch on your wrist with a long sleeve shirt, customs will surely like to tax that little baby!!!

Looking forward to the remaining days of your adventure, we hope they go slow for you.

Love

Rowan, Jenni, Rhys, and Isobel
