We had lunch again at the wonderful Buca di Baldabo in Vico Pancellorum. It was a beautiful day and after lunch we ventured into new territory when we headed uphill from the restaurant.
The name Vico Pancellorum may have come from ‘panis celorum’ – heavenly bread, but more probably from a type of grass, ‘panicellum’ which grew in the area. The town is ancient and now has a population of only about 120 inhabitants.
Come for a walk to the top of the village.
We walked back to the car through beautiful chestnut trees.
The birds were singing, wildlfowers line the road and the air is heavenly. What more could you wish for?

There is an official website for Vico Pancellorum…vicopancellorum.toscana.it
Vico is a wonderful village and your great photos, Debra, show it to perfection. I think that one of the “problems” that we have in Bag I is to choose where to go… We have so many choices!!! I think that the cat is gorgeous….
We are certainly spoilt for choice here. All of the villages have something different to offer. The cat was quite relaxed about being included in the post.
Oh my dear Debra, as if I walked with you too… what a beautiful photographs… and amazing view… It is dazzling beauty… Fascinated me… I loved this village and and and yes, my best one is the CAT…. how nicely looking with her paws… you captured so nice photographs, Thank you dear Debra, have a nice day, love, nia
Reblogged this on photographyofnia and commented:
Going to Italy! Feel all these beautiful views…
Thank you for that Nia. I hope you come to Italy to visit me one day.
Love the little kitty and goat! And you’ve changed your theme, looks great!
Hi Jennifer, the theme is the same, perhaps you are confusing it with Bagni di Lucca and Beyond.
Yes, yes, confused I was. It’s all clear now, you write two blogs and I am not following both!
I think you are now. How is the Tourist Office going?
Gosh, it’s early … and the sun, wait .. where is the sun?? I meant to write ” I am NOW … ”
Tourist office is going great, wish there were more tourists! 😉
Next time we will hire a smaller car so that we feel more comfortable visiting some of the more out of the way villages! We were fortunate that our vacation home allowed lots of walking in the neighbourhood though. It was great to meet up with you. Thanks for taking the time and do hope your new house is nearly done!
The house is coming along, but I doubt it will be finished before I have to go home.
What stunning photos!
beautiful … as I see you love doors too 🙂
I have hundreds of photos of doors. I always want to know what is behind them.
me too, I also love windows
That is the best cat picture ever. The photos are stunning!
It was a cute kitty.
Such gorgeous photos, I love them all and feel like I was there, noticing all these things too. Thanks for the trip nia!
Vico is a lovely village and we had a beautiful day to wander to the top.
Beautiful memories Debra!
It was a great day.
What a fabulous walk we just had. You’re right- I need a little light refreshment now.
The walk to the top is quite steep. We all needed refreshments.
Looks like you did indeed reach to the top of the world!
There are great views from the top of Vico Pancellorum.
Adore all the images!
Such breathtaking photos of a gorgeous place. My Italin dream is planned to Sept!
I hope you make it to our area.
Lovely photos as usual. I love all the old door knockers…some are really beautiful.
I have dozens of photos of door knockers….I love them.
Beautiful … How long of a drive from your home in Bagni?
The drive takes about 15 – 20 minutes from my house along beautiful, but narrow and winding roads.
I am fortunate to have a family home in Vico and once I retire I would like to be like you and spend several months in Italy. I enjoy reading your blog and seeing the pictures of Vico made me wish I was there.
You are lucky to have a house in Vico Pancellorum. It is a beautiful village. I hope you don’t have to wait too long to be there.
To walk in a Tuscan village! There must be no place on earth more beautiful. I enjoyed this post very much. And, you found a wonderful cat for Nia! 🙂
Thank you for visiting Bagni di Lucca. That cat was pretty cute.
The place looks so lovely and peaceful. Thanks for sharing.
Vico is a lovely village. I have been several times, but this was the first time without rain and mist.
