When I was planning this trip, I thought that we should drop off the car near the Tuscan area where we had spent the week, so I chose Chiusi, which was in that area. I chose Chiusi just because there was a rental car return in that town and there was handy train connection back to Rome. I did not want to drive into Rome, nor did I want to drive to …

We arrived in Siena way to hungry. It was 2:30 and we had only had a light snack at 11 am. We have not been good about eating before we get too hangry. We found an open restaurant and I ordered the Antipasta and 3 Pastas! Talk about my eyes being bigger than my stomach. One of the pastas I ordered ...
