a few photos of Coccaglio

Coccaglio (my last stop) is a tiny little town where my friends Katia and Guido live. Coccaglio is located in the Franciacorta area of Lombardy (Lombardia) between Bergamo & Brescia, and when using more familiar landmarks, between Milan & Verona:

I'm sorry, I've spaced out...have you been there before?

This will be my 7th visit although we have not spent much time hanging out in the town and so my photos of Coccaglio are pretty limited. We always go to Lake Iseo for breakfast one morning and usually to one other interesting place during my stay. My friends are wonderful, always taking me to interesting places when I visit and many are not common tourist stops.

Jill:

Ah, this is Katia's town! Now I remember. Really, I've been following along. I blame it on the fumes from scrubbing the counters and floors. ;-D

Jill, you make me laugh! Now don't go mixing any of those cleaning fluids together. I did go back to add my friends' names on the post since it was a lacking a little info for others to follow.

I know Brescia well - well, I stayed there twice with friends, and we went to Lake Iseo.

Ahhh, lucky you!!

Leslie, isn't Lake Iseo wonderful??

Sandra:

Lovely photos, Girasoli! I can see why you return here!

Anne:

Looks like a beautiful place!

(Jill's comment cracked me up too...mercifully I do not suffer from the cleaning sickness myself.)

Thanks, It is a beautiful place, especially the drive to Lake Iseo. I hope to take more photos with my new camera this summer.
