“And then they were two (and a half)" would Agatha Christie say.
We have Lucca left and Roma+Frascati in the Castelli Romani, so close to each other.
Lucca has many reasons to be loved like f.ex. its history, its beauty, its walls around town and the passegiata, its culture, its closeness to the sea and to all the tuscan villages. We did visit 6 houses to get to know the real estate market, all worth moving to (allthough 2 were way too big).
Frascati in the Castelli Romani is small but 25 minutes away from Rome (Termini station) with a comfortable train; has an inviting passegiata in the shade of majestic trees and many other reasons to be loved (excellent pasta being one). However it is rather small and is on the list because its nearness to Rome.
The Eternal City is, well, eternal because of all the ruins everywhere do relentlessly remind us of its 27 centuries of history.
And the winner is ………
Nous en sommes donc a Sanremo 8 points (comme on dit a l’Eurovision).
Roma/Frascati 12 points … gagnant avec petite longueur d’avance sur Lucca.
Nous avons donc decide de la region mais pas encore de l’endroit exact.
