Pinocchio’s Home Town

Collodi is a small town in Tuscany that is famous for being named after the author of Pinocchio. On our recent trip, we made a quick stop there.

On the top of the hill there’s a very small village which enjoys a fantastic view of Tuscany. We drove up and I hiked in to take photos.

We didn’t spend a lot of time, essentially “Look and Leave Tours”. The larger city has a museum to Pinocchio. The line of parents and children waiting to get in rivaled some rides at Disney. Needless to say, we weren’t that interested in seeing the inside.

I'm an engineer, a veteran, and an avid traveler. I agree with Robert Louis Stevenson - "I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move."
