Because Kevin Said I Couldn't

Here's the house that inspired the book and movie Under the Tuscan Sun. It's in Cortona, on one of the roads from the main part of the city up to the cathedral. Our group agreed that we didn't like the book or movie much, but the house is gorgeous.

We strolled up the long, windy road, peering through the light fog to catch glimpses of what must be fantastic views, up to the cathedral, which was closed. A brief look around, and we headed down a much steeper, much more direct route. This path took us past beautiful mosaics of the Stations of the Cross (in reverse order going down) and the University of Georgia campus where my friend had lived and studied when she was in Italy before.
