when we drive back to rome on tuesday we will travel via the back route-- through the hilly countryside. no autostrada or toll roads for us.
we did this the last time we were here and it was worth the extra 20 or so minutes it took. really it didn't make that big a difference timewise. no one seems to know this - everyone is in such a hurry to get to the airport. honestly, sometimes the direct route (autostrada) is the slowest because everyone else is on it.
we expect to see some snow along the way.
|what comes with hills? beautiful views!|
|i think all houses are 4 stories tall....|
|more ancient hilltop towns along the way.|
