Arezzo and Tuscany, Italy - 22nd-25th July 2008

Following on from our brief stay in Rome, we head up the autostrada to our pad for the week: a converted farmhouse near the town of Arezzo in Tuscany. It's a chance for a bit of relaxation by the pool, as well as several nights out in the nearby town for some pizza, pasta and plenty of Limoncello...
