Northern Italy and Tuscany

Northern Italy and Tuscany 1800 1109 John Whitmore Photography

July 2017, the car was packed, 50% of the boot was filled with camera equipment and the route was set for the drive down to Italy from the UK.  2 weeks of travelling around Northern Italy, Tuscany, Lake Como, Cinque Terre.  Freedom.
Passing through Southern UK and the length of France the driving changes as soon as we passed through the Mont Blanc Tunnel, to Italian driving.  Turin was the most exhilarating. The speed, the chaos.  But somehow it all flows, there’s a contradictory peacefulness to it all.  An elegance.

So press play (if you can), listen to Einaudi and join me through the stunning scenery and characterful towns of Northern Italy.
