Tired of this?

How can one ever tire of the wonderful little scenes that are constantly revealed in a medieval town? Certainly one of the joys of my life is to wander streets and finding them.

Here, we get a glimpse of garden, framed by a partially covered and steep street.  for you urban designers, notice how the street is graded:  water flows to the middle, and since there’s not much of it, there’s no inlet at the bottom but simply flows into the next street.  Now, since it rarely freezes here in Cortona, there isn’t much of an issue with that.
