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 …
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 …

TravelPod Member ReviewsOstello Del Chianti Florence
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.
