Italy: From Positano to Poggibonsi

We've certainly seen some wide and varied landscapes on this journey through Italy—serpentining canals of old Venice; the ├╝ber fast and chic city life of Rome (amazingly juxtaposed against towering ancient ruins); the casusl seaside groove of the Amalfi coast; and now we are in the rural countryside of Tuscany in a beautiful villa named I Melograni del Chianti, which is run by a charming, multi-linguistic woman named Serena, and her husbandYellow ochre hills filled with vineyards and olive groves are punctuated with rows of columnar cypress trees, all standing guard like loyal soldiers. This rooster woke me up this morning!
