View of Fiesole

And do you remember Fiesole? There she is way out there on the hill! The larger building you can see on the highest point is the Basillica di San Francesco posted a couple weeks ago. Getting a feel for the lay of the land?!  :-)

Sure! After your tour, Elizabeth, I feel I know the place very well.

In fact, I can save some money by not going there now I have taken your virtual tour.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well I'm happy to oblige!!

You have truly captured the beauty of this view, Elizabeth. I do feel like I know where I am thanks to you ;-)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So glad Anyes! Although I truly recommend a visit of your own! Perhaps when I win the lottery you can come stay with me, because I plan to move there! smile

It's as if I went there myself Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so happy for that Chris! I was hoping to give that feeling throughout the series.
You have covered some ground in this series, I like this elevated shot of all the varied houses.

Well worth the effort to get to the top Elizabeth what a view.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so glad you think so Pedroeric - I sure did!
I think I told you already, you deserve a piazza there. Thank you for the tour indeed Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I'm so glad you think so! Wouldn't I love to have even a little villa! Now to convince Florence of that!
Whenever you do decide to move there, Elizabeth, I suspect you will have no shortage of visitors. What a view from the Dome!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'll keep the spare room ready for you Beverly! smile

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so happy for that!
You certainly covered some ground during your holiday Elizabeth, did you get time to sleep and eat!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: We did see much! And oh - I guarantee you we ate! And slept a little too!
What a lovely and charming place Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was just that!
I love to look at roof tops Elizabeth... so many different shapes and colours... the mountains in the distance do it for me....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes! As interesting as the roof tops are - The mountains complete the composition don't they!

I need to spend more time in Florence, our 'grand tour' was all too fleeting.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes you must John!
That's a marvellously clear day for Florence!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, we were quite fortunate this day!
By the look of it, a view which has probably not changed for hundreds of years. Nice shot. Cheers, Dave.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No doubt you are correct Dave! Thanks so much for your comment & visit!
