Morning visit to Grottaglie
We went on a morning outing to the city of Grottaglie not too far from Mesagne. It is home to some pretty amazing pottery and I love visiting this town each year to grab a new piece to add to my collection.
After a little walk, we stopped for some refreshments and then continued on our walk through the old city.
My mom, the girls and I outside the church.
Inside an antiques store in the old city.
A random adorable alley and some not-so--random adorable girls.
Love them so much! And love that they love checking out the old sections of the cities as much as their momma.
I'm going to dedicate a post to pictures that Sofia took, she had a great time snapping up anything and everything. Just like her momma. Apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.
Zio Antonio and a door he would never fit through without hitting his head.
Taking a picture of a little girl taking a picture. There was some pretty funny and interesting graffiti all over the old city. Sometimes this is a shame how people paint over the old walls, but then when it's something interesting like the ones we saw that day, it kind of adds a little charm to it as well. Not sure how the residents feel about it though.
Obviously, the tourists love it.
