Out and About in Orbetello

Published by at 9:09 am under Italy,Orbetello

On the suggestion of Dave’s co-worker who writes guidebooks for Italy, we decided to check out an area along the Tuscan coast on Friday after arriving on the red-eye (and before starting our villa stay in Tuscany on Saturday).  The area is not very well known by American tourists – mostly, Italians go there to get away from us.  😉

The area is called the Silver Coast, about an hour and a half north of Rome, and has some beautiful hills descending right into the Mediterranean.  We stayed in a little town called Orbetello on a spit of land leading out to a peninsula.  We did not remotely do this area justice in only one day and night, but we had a nice time.  Some pics below:

 Gorgeous coastline.


 This guy is hilarious.  But not effective, because we ate gelato elsewhere.

    Great pictures here. I think we are getting a preview of a future halloween costume.
