San Baronto and Vinci

ITALY | Sunday, 4 August 2013 | Views [330]

While some went to Cinque Terre today Karen, Michelle, Neil and I went to Leonardo Di Vinci's nearby home town of Vinci by our trusty taxi driver. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinci,_Tuscany).  Another hilltop Tuscan town with a couple of great museums (http://www.museoleonardiano.it/eng ) with loads of models and drawings of his inventions.  We climbed the tower for views of the Tuscan countryside before meeting Neil, who had been sketching the tower (and fending off tourists) for a drink. A little shopping by the ladies for ceramics then back to San Baronto for lunch.
Spent the afternoon by the pool.
The evening consisted of us all sitting in the courtyard area and consuming the remaining breads, cheeses, prosciutto, cold meats, salads and alcohol we had as it was our last night together as a group before everyone went their separate ways.
