timeless hill towns of central italy

We joined throngs of people pounding the pavements of these picturesque medieval and renaissance towns in the searing heat. The beauty is still timeless view images of: sparkling Byzantine mosaics of Basilica San Vitale in Ravenna, Gradara, Gubbio, Perugia, Siena, Urbino and San Gimignano.

 

 

We sometimes consider how people in those times would have lived such a hard life, with little of the comforts we have today. But what a beautiful environment they had! How would they feel about being landed in one of our cities or suburbs?
