2013-09-28 : Cortona

We arrived Cortnoa 2pm. After a nice easy ride to Montepulciano and a visit to the central square, we took the small roads to Castiglione del Lago then decided it was not worth the traffic congestion to enter the city and instead headed north to a small village were we had a nice expresso and ate our lunch in the piazza. 

Backroads continued until we expertly(!) picked up the final switchbacks up the hillside into Cortona!

Very nice place. We have three nights here. We will see if the rain really does come tomorrow! 

We head out of here Tuesday morning up over the hill .. because it is Marion's birthday Tuesday and that's going to make her day!

Cheers all!

Harold and Marion
