A Walk through Valdottavo

Valdottavo is a small Tuscan town north of Lucca and Pisa.  It is beautiful, and as I said to Katie over and over, it just feels so Italian.  Katie and Andrea spend the summer in Valdottavo, and it has been such a treat getting to know the town.

Welcome to Valdottavo!

We took a long walk through town one day and took pictures along the way.  Our first stop was a bridge crossing the small river that runs through town.

Then we walked down the main street in Valdottavo.

Of course we made a stop at Valdottavo's local grocery store!  We bought some grapes but didn't have the correct change to pay for them.  No problem, just bring it by another day.  Valdottavo is great!

And then we came across one of our favorite sights of the day -- Andrea outside of his house slicing prosciutto crudo for lunch.  Yum!

We will really miss Valdottavo, but the good thing is that we know we will be back to visit Katie and Andrea!
