One afternoon, while staying in Ponte a Serraglio, we walked up the narrow, winding road to Bagni Caldi. Famous for its healing waters and natural grottos, the thermal spa town has been a favourite since the 13th century. We didn’t actually make it to the town but the walk held some delightful surprises. This seemed a sensible way to get the groceries home.
We crossed a tranquil, flowing stream
and passed a long forgotten chapel.
This building contrasted sharply with the verdant landscape.
As we climbed higher, the views became more breathtaking.
We made it as far as the Hotel Pio X.
The ominous clouds urged us to turn back.
It was a lovely way to walk off lunch.
