Tuscany

A travel blog entry by amy_goes

I signed up for a horseback tour of some vineyards which was lovely, followed by an authentic Tuscany meal at a restaurant in the castle town of Monteriggiore and a wine tasting. I met a lady at the hostel who was from New Zealand, also travellng solo and we got acquainted. We took the bus to the city of Siena one day for a walking tour. Otherwise …

TO TAVARNELLE, TO THE COUNTRYSIDE!

A travel blog entry by kasey_kid

Florence, or Firenze, as the Italians like to call it, was a source of frustration before I even set foot on its beautiful paved stone streets.  Recall last blog post (if you read it, of course), how I mentioned that I had a bit of an exhausted meltdown, well, the principle provoker of it was the lack of available hostels I was able to find in …

... of the famous David statue. There wasn't much to see there so we went straight back to our apartment. In the afternoon we went on a quest. The girls had researched the possibility of hiring mopeds to get around Florence. Can't you just imagine six of us on three mopeds, zipping around. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, we weren't able to hire as Dad was the only one who brought his driving licence. Dash it all! But hey there was always shopping to do. ...

... the main floor was closed off for visitors. I wish they would have mentioned that when they gleefully took my €30 to get in. Oh well Italy is struggling at the moment and every little bit counts. What should have taken a couple of hours had only taken 90 mins. I could see signs for the cafe on the terrace overlooking the Duomo and thought I had done reasonably well. The cafe was full and so we decided to go and get something to eat. Off down the stairs following the ...

The next day I head to Pienza and purchase most of the gifts for my family from the little boutiques there, and re-visit the divine Townhouse Restaurant, for a glass of prosecco, porchetta with peach and chilli, and stacked Tiramisu. Unsure of where I'll stay that evening, I head towards Florence, driving back through the gorgeous countryside and saying ...

A great stay at this hostel. Sylvia (front desk) was friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was included in the price. Internet was free although there was only one computer. It was a five minute walk from the shops and restaurants of the town square which was great for practicing my rudimentary Italian! It's a good location if you want a quiet country retreat.
