Pitigliano – this place Rocks

In the south of Tuscany you will find a treasure of towns hewn out of the rock and dating back to Etruscan times, which for people like me means pre-Roman times. Put simpler, a very long time ago.  We stayed just outside Pitigliano for a few days and I just loved this little town set on a rocky outcrop. Below the town are a number of old Etruscan ‘roads’ which are essentially deep cuttings in the rock, allowing an almost unseen road. The whole place is magical with good restaurants, cobbled walkways and a charm all of its own. It may not be the archetypal Tuscan image, but why should that matter?

I am now back off holiday, but have a backlog of things to do, so for now some more ‘holiday’ posts will ensue. Hope you like them.

One of the jobs was to put a watermark on photos – you will see that this has now been achieved on this picture using ‘pixillion’ (which is free). The only trouble is I could not put the full title ‘Meticulous Mick’ on it and ideally I wanted to also include a shamrock / 4 leaf clover. Anybody got any good suggestions for me? Thinking of getting ‘Lightroom 5’ is that on there?

  1. I’d love to visit this town. Looks like my kinda’ holiday. Historical ruins or walled medieval towns just fascinate and keep me entertained for hours/days. Shame we don’t have this sort of thing in Australia.
