We got into Florence last night and are staying at a beautiful villa in the countryside. The weather is pretty warm and a bit muggy...but we're in Italy, so who's gonna complain?
We are staying in one of four main living spaces (the last image above). There is a main house, our house, a house on the backside of ours and another on the hill. The countryside is beautiful and the people who have put us up have been wonderful. They have cooked us dinner both nights...amazing company, food and wine (and lemoncello...no wonder Danny Devito goes crazy for it).
The grounds are vast with a variety of gardens, statues, olive fields, and amazing architecture everywhere you turn.
We are working a party tomorrow at a castle, so everyone has to get up early...so, this will be short.
Hopefully I'll have more time in the next couple of days.
