The hilltop town of Montemerano in the Grosseto Province of Tuscany, Italy

This picturesque Tuscan hilltop town we visited on a whim was like a dream come true.

Fran, Jeff and Bosco enjoy the pride people take in their homes’ appearance here

The helpful Montemerano map ensures you find the little pathways to the cool sites. Bosco found the giant pine cone on his own


What a pretty spot


Jeff and Fran consider hilltop real estate


Doorways to size


Italian towns often have drinking water fountains just like this one. Bosco enjoys a tasting
