    A War Memorial

    Great view of the surrounding hills

    At the end of 'pottery lane', there are a set of steps that lead up a fairly steep hill, to a war memorial. I'm ashamed to say, I didn't read the inscription, nor even glance at the wars it commemorated.

    I really just wanted an elevated spot from which to take photos of the surrounding hillsides. I promise that upon my return to Arqua Petrarca in the next few weeks, I shall give proper respect to the fallen.

    To my defense, this area is also used as a sort of 'Lovers Lane', and one young couple rather coveted the immediate area around the base of the memorial.

    The ascent up these stairs will take perhaps five minutes at best, but the view is worth any moisture lost.

    I have enclosed a photo of the memorial.

    Arqua Petrarca is a place to go when you are in the mood for low level tourist 'stuff'. There is no rush to get from one site to another because you can't return home without taking a snap shot. The whole town is the site, a collective.

    I love coming here, and slowly wandering about, stopping for a leisurely meal, and a drink in an enoteca. There is no pressure to do anything.

    Just take your time, and dream of yesteryear.
