Continuing our Tuscan Tour: Arezzo - Part 2

I had to photograph this for Emily!

A mint Victrola!! I so would love this!!!
You can see the bell-tower of the Pieve di Santa Maria ahead.

LOVE all the pretty ceramics!


Another antique headboard and footboard.




This is the restaurant we had lunch in. I so wish I had taken a picture of our lunches!!! This area of Italy is famous for their beef - the best in all of Europe! There's a steak that especially good and only made here, which is what I had (the original Chianina "Bistecca alla Fiorentina"). It was the thickest, largest, bestest best steak I'd ever had!!!! AND I couldn't finish it, lol! So the guide did score on point on this one! Bella had a cheese pizza (her favorite), but she was too fidgety to eat much. I wanted a nibble but I didn't dare come close to cheese while on a tour. (I love it but it doesn't love me back!) So if you come to Arezzo, dine here!
GORGEOUS ceramics!!!
I wanted to snatch all these up!
Bella's new Hello Kitty pen!
Sitting on the steps of San Franceso church again, waiting to walk back to the bus. Next up? Cortona!!

Looks like you had wonderful weather for your tour thru the city. Loved the pictures.

Love Bella's Hello Kitty pen, too. ;)

Is that an Italian flea market?? They just don't have flea markets like that in the states! So...what are the prices like on the ceramics at the market? A little bit more affordable than in the stores? Or no?

So much fun stuff! I love how you take so many pictures of all the artistic details on the buildings! I love it!

And I wish I could go there someday and try the best steak ever! That sounds like so much fun. Yummy fun! I love all the interesting things for sale, too!
