Anghiari, near Arezzo

Visit Anghiari in the early evening

when the shutters are thrown back

small shops open for last minute purchases

children are let out to play

watched by indulgent grandparents

shopkeepers sit outside in the cool

and you can relax in a café
and enjoy drinks in every colour of the rainbow.

with thanks to Monica
who recommended that we visit Anghiari.

Isn't it great to have friends
from every corner of the world
who can tell you about the best places to visit.


  1. I'd be more than happy to sit on a bench there and watch the children play.

  2. I've made a note for when we next go back!

  3. Blogger driven tourism has unearthed many a wonderful spot!

  4. I bet that shop smells lovely. Proper fruit and veg. x

  5. Bliss - there's a lot to said for the European way of life. x

  6. Great photos, I love the peaceful realness of them. If that makes sense. The drinks sound divine!


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
