Charming Tuscan Hill Town
Montepulciano is a charming hill town in Tuscany. Walk the streets to get a feel for its appeal. On the outskirts of town visit San Biagio, a 16th-century church. This late-Renaissance building was constructed on the site of a pre-existing Palaeochristian pieve (a type of church) dedicated to Saint Mary and subsequently to Saint Blaise. By the early 16th century the pieve had fallen into ruin, its remains including a wall with a fresco of the Madonna with child, and Saint Francis, from a 14th-century Sienese painter. The church today has a circular plan with a large dome over a terrace and a squared tambour. The exterior, with two bell towers, is built in white travertine. It's a lovely church worth the hike from the town center.

Sunset over the Tuscan Hills
Someone told me there was an overlook for watching the sunset here in Montepulciano, but I wasn't sure I would make it in time or if I would bother to find it. So, I just wandered around, somewhat aimlessly as is my M.O. and found this overlook. Yup, this was it. I found a spot along the wall and looked out over the Tuscan hills and valley as the colors along the old stone and brick buildings turned gold and the shadows in the valley deepened. An Aussie couple in bike gear came up beside me and we chatted about how lovely it all was. But, it was a time of mostly peace and tranquility for me. So, my usual exuberance took a hike for a few minutes so I could relish the quiet...just the click of my camera and the beating of my heart as I watched the sun finally disappear behind the Tuscan hills.

Drying Laundry - Eco Friendly Style
One of the things I love about being in Italy is simply wandering around a town or city. The Tuscan hill town of Montepulciano is perfect for this. Sure, there are the busy pedestrian ways with shops selling wine, cheese, clothing and ceramics. But, turn down a less trafficked road and you discover the real Italy. Women sweeping the cobblestones in front of their homes, old men sitting outside a small shop chatting away, children walking to school. This is where I feel I get to know a place. Take for instance laundry. Looking up at someone's skivvies being hung out to dry...well, what better way than that to get to know someone!
