I arrived at Siena train station just before 10am excited to begin my day of sampling both Siena and San Gimignano but first I needed to find the entrance to the city. Across from the train station there is a shopping centre with signs showing the way to the city centre. I went in but I lost track of the signs so I walked out again. I walked around outside but I couldn't find an obvious entrance so I decided to follow people. Surprisingly, most people were heading into the ...
When we originally arrived at the Arizona we were surprised to find that there was a Synagogue next door and the delicatessen, on closer inspection, advertised that its products were kosher!

The seemingly world wide habit of affixing locks as a symbol of love is also taken to its height. The manufacturers must be ...
We did plan to have an early-ish morning, but we slept in a bit. Or at least I did!! I slept in until around 9:30, while I'm pretty sure everyone else woke up at 8:00. I'm glad I slept in though, I wouldn't have gotten through the day otherwise. It was an hours train ride to Pisa from Florence. Luckily the station was only a ten minute walk. We had a quick breakfast of McDonald's (which was really yummy!!) which almost made us miss the train. ...
