Poppi, Tuscany is the most important town in the Casentino Valley with excellent examples of Tuscan feudal architecture. The Poppi Castle is not to be missed.It is also the town that overlooks the fields where the Battle of Campaldino took place between the Guelphs and the Ghibellines with Poppi Castle overlooking these fields. Looking out of the windows of this wonderful castle, that is still in excellent condition, one can only wonder how the occupants of the time must have felt as the battle raged on around them.
I took the photo below on one of my many visits to this lovely little town and to me it reminded me that no matter what alley way or window you look out of in Italy, you will always be rewarded with an unexpected view or find something of interest.
