Re #3301, Tuscanny area of Italy. Great part of Italy. Scenery is fabulous and food is marvelous but expensive. Primative housing, water supply. Take care about availability and quality of medical care and medicines. High (outrageous) cost for clothing, food and gasoline. Off the main path; many tombs to see, if you are into that. Most if not all DO NOT speak English. Gasoline about $4-5/gal and AutoStradda tolls are out of sight. Good rail system. Random strikes of postal workers or bank workers or rail workers, etc. Water sometimes only available for certain hours. Small refrigerators and washers. Often no dryers. Fabulous weather. Lovely people, if you can TALK to them.
