          Today we visited Siena, the birthplace of Saint Catherine. The city, as many of the ones we have already viisted, is a medieval one but this city no longer has its walls. It fought for many years with the people of Florence. It is famous for The Palio, which is a horse race that is held twice a year on July 2 and Aug 16. The people stand in the middle of the Piazza del Campo and on the outside edge and the ten horses race in between. The riders ride bareback and the 10 ...

          ... and make it to Montalcino via Pienza without any other problems.


          Our stop in Pienza was our first visit to a Tuscan hilltown. Pope Pius II (of the Piccolomini family) was born in the area, and decided to remake the town into one fit for a Pope. It was a fine example of Renaissance architecture and planning principles, with a main square surrounded by the Duomo (church) and Palazzo (the pope’s family residence). The stone construction from the ...

          ... night and decided that made sense.
          The road started going up and the conversation on the bike became a little tense. As the pitch rose so did the tension.
          Then the pavement ended and we were on an unpaved road heading straight up with not a town in sight.
          Dan + no food + no water = uh oh. But we persevered (with little ...

          The time has come to uncover the mystery of the elusive best of the best Brunello di Montecino wine so I can keep my promise to my son to send him some.

          So as to not spoil the fun, I booked a weekend right in Montalcino itself over airbnb, but one night before in Siena as otherwise I would have no hope of catching the 9 am Brunello Wine Bus there since it takes 3 hours to get there from Florence plus I would have to go over Siena anyway.

          Our time in Tuscany is sadly winding down and there is still so much more to see and do! Today we're turning our attention to another of the region's hill towns - Montalcino. In addition, we will also have the opportunity to sample the fabulous wine of that city's surrounding vineyards, the luscious red Brunello di Montalcino. But first we have breakfast to deal with. Up until today we have somewhat ignored breakfast during our stay in Marciano, ...
