The village of Collodi, named after the famous writer Carlos Collodi (Lorenzini), writer of the Pinocchio stories. I wonder if he got most of his inspiration from walking these quaint village streets.
Piazza of Vellano village in Pescia, Valleriana.
Stunning Barga with much Scottish influence. You can hear the locals speak Italian with a scottish accent. Its the only place ive been here in Italy that do.

Vicopisano in Pisa.
I love this scene, as you come down the steps, the journey continues through the arch and onto the winding road through the trees.
Castelvecchio village in the Valleriana, Pescia.
Grazie mille for visiting and please do leave a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts on these Tuscan village gems.
Have a GREAT week,
Fish and chip festival in Barga, yer canna beat it.
Haha any fish’n’chips will do for me right now. I miss them here in the Tuscan hills. Do you know if they are just as scrumptious as back home? I had some in Viareggio and they weren’t, siigh!
Ive always missed this festa and perhaps I can make the next one:-).
Thanks for posting Angel.
Ahh look. They seem pretty tasty in 2010 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pR2GenvNMjk
I recognise that clock tower. Been there 2 years ago in summer. Does it snow in winter? Get cold?
Hey Denise, it does snow sometimes. It can get quite cold some winters and the villages look magical. The further up the mountain the village is, the more likely snow will fall. I can see that Ponito has snow when half a mile down the road doesn’t because its higher. Temp lowers to about -5 during the night from my experience.
Thank you for visiting.
