Cortona and Florence (October 2005)

A couple of days in Tuscany … After arriving in Florence by plane, I took the train to Cortona (Villa Marsili Hotel), a walled city located on a hill (about 500 metres above sea level) where every step will take you either up or down – there is just one street that is approximately level. I visited the Museo dell’Accademia that had opened shortly before as well as some of the Etruscan tombs in the vicinity. I returned to Florence for another three days before taking the flight back to Hamburg. (Cameras used: Fuji FinePix S9500 and FinePix F10, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7, Pentax *ist Ds)
