Shots Of The Winding Roads Up - And Up

Ah! The joys of driving Perugia.

Seriously. This is one of the most fun cities to drive in Italy, because of the wonderful streets, the relative absence of traffic, and the swooping climbs up and down. Meredith would have enjoyed this, even if she mostly took a bus.

Many streets below the walled city to the south and the west resemble these first five shots. Many streets 10outside the walled city to the north and the east resemble the second five shots. 

The shot above is from the exact same spot as the last two shots in the post below: in front of the railway station. (The last shot was of the Co-op, a major retail store Meredith surely shopped in.)

After this straight stretch up, the street up makes 10 zigs and 10 zags and you’re there. Either at the south end of the walled city (Piazza Italia), or if you took a left at a y-junction, you’ll be below the School for Foreigners.

The second five shots are of the street 10outside the “gate” at the top end of Garibaldi. Sollecito’s street. Sollecito would have used that gate frequently to drive down to the engineering school in the valley to the west.

Continue for about a mile on the street that passes the gate - which swoops way down and way up again - and you’ll be at Meredith’s house.

The last shot is from above and behind Meredith’s house.
