Evening falls on Castiglione della Pescaia - a small and graceful town on the Tyrrhenian coast.



Here we ate pizza on an outdoor terrace with local wine and plenty of Italian sounds to quiet the blaring noise of our own innate stress. This is what a vacation is meant to be!



With nary a tourist in sight (whoops, except us!), the town offers a genuine sense of local heritage.



And tomorrow you shall see the old town!

Now that's my kind of vacation, pizza and not having to fight crowds.

Wow, it's so clean! And well lit! It's like Disneyland, but fancier and more fun (and way less people). :D

What a beautiful town. I can almost imagine sitting there having a bite to eat while breathing in the town.

Isn't it wonderful to explore an area when there are no others around, except yourselves of course.

I wish I could be sitting at the little table sipping a nice glass of wine. Just lovely.
