Yes, the first cappuch…a welcome sight on the first morning. We over-slept and while the whole group was touring Cortona we sat in the breakfast room drinking in the views with the coffee.
from below Cortona looks like this
and at the top is Piazza Garibaldi where the Hotel San Luca is located…built down the hillside.
This year Italy is celebrating 150 years of being a republic, but life is always a festival in Cortona
The first night we ate with Cara and Jack and Irene at La Logetta where the waitress with the big glasses charmed us all
and Irene’s dessert was AMAZING
and then the next day the touring started…Assisi and Perugia…an exhausting march for the jet-lagged but we had good guides
but here in Perugia a couple of us experienced the “refusing to tour” moment
and there’s ALWAYS something interesting to look at in Italy
coffee break time…
Wishing for Italy! Beautiful photos, feel like I’m right there, thanks for sharing!
What I would like to know is why, suddenly, the coffees in America, or at least our neck of Oregon, are prettier than their vaunted homeland?
welcome home. great pixs of the region!!! thanks for sharing your “road trip” :))
I think they look exactly like cappucino’s in Italy should look. I am most fascinated by the nice linens under both of the cups!
