... choice but to skip out! It's not like we didn't try a few times to pay. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and for the next 3 hours we learned all about the Catterdrale, Libereria Piccolomini, the Pailo - the bareback horse race which was going to be run in a weeks time and the 17 contrada of the city who are vying for the horse race - a kind of state of origin type rivalry.
