This is center of Montecatini Terme!
The most wonderful walkable italian city ever ---we are so at home here, it is clean, festive, and safe to walk and there are so many eateries I doubt we will get a chance to try them all!
After we had checked in, had some lunch and a bit of a nap, we met with our guide Jim West for a walking tour of Montecatini Terme so he could give us a bit of the lay of the land, point out some places that we should not miss, and help us get our bearings so we would know how to find our way back to the hotel when we were done with our time on the town.
Our group is eager and ready to roll!
I still can’t believe we are here!
Go this way for the best pizza, and don’t forget to try every available flavor of gelato!
Most places offer gluten free options!
Which way should we go?
A bit of window shopping maybe??
Bow tie pasta dress!
Keep your wallet in your pocket, it was over 340 EUROS! But fun!
Seriously? I’d break my neck!
Hey, this looks like a quilt!
Lovely street corners!
My traveling companions near the fountain!
Now you’re talking!
We settled for this!
((Yes, this is a Gelato-selfie!!))
Church steeple visible from the fountain.
The bells go off ALL. THE. TIME.
There is so much more to post, but I already know I”ll have a dickens of a time uploading these photos!
Love from Italy --
