Italy: Montieri

Rome one morning, to rural Tuscany that afternoon:
This is the view of Montieri:Only 616 families live here, and very few of them speak English!
The region around medieval Montieri is an oasis for nature lovers.
Patrick picked this spot due to it' s incredible mountain biking and hiking!
The town is so quaint, cobblestones everywhere, with the "elders" taking steps around the hills!
And it's so cute how quiet they get when you walk by.
Everyone knows everyone... and they know when you're an outsider.
This was just a "funny" sign on the way from our resort to the town:We did learn first-hand how everything shuts down for the afternoon. They are serious about their siestas! From 1pm to 5pm everything is closed. But at 5:01pm the town comes alive! I don't know where they all came from, but dozens of friends and neighbors file in to the town square to hang out.

LOL. Glad you're enjoying Italy. I'd like to go there someday.
