40 degrees, just about a record temp and time for a quiet day

Thursday 16th July

It keeps getting hotter and hotter in Southern Italy and today we relaxed in Arezzo, sleeping in, lying about, having a long lunch in a delightful restaurant in old town and doing some shopping. The heat looks like staying around so we will have to adapt as well as we can.

Our small diesel Mercedes-Benz has a very effective air con and has carried with speed and comfort around Tuscany. Tomorrow we will drive via Ravenna to Padua

Arezzo is a varied and ancient old town with a new upmarket industrial base. It is the home of Petrarch and Vasari and styles itself as the city of art. There are many impressive and varied churches and a wonderful collection of antique shops which we have very much enjoyed browsing.
