Travel Blogs from Montalcino

Sickness, but trudging on to Montepulciano anyway!

A travel blog entry by lizziep


... race...

The piazza looks very similar to other squares in other hill towns. They all have their own character, but they are all very similar to each other as well. I got several pictures of Lizzie sitting down today, given that she isn't quite 100%, but the photo of her laid out on the square might be my favorite.

We had eaten a bit before we came to Montepulciano, so when I spotted gelato stands on the way up the hill, you know I was looking for new, ...

Tuscany, Pienza and Doug cooking dinner...

A travel blog entry by lizziep


... chatted with my mom (special guest appearances from Uncle Mike and Aunt Carolyn) while Doug cooked. Such is the life! He boiled the pasta and made a “sauce” from olive oil (what else?!) and heated some left over pork from dinner last night. Then added some spices to the sauce (all provided in the apartment), threw in the perfectly cooked noodles and we had a fabulous dinner. Thanks Doug! You rock.

Savoring Siena

A travel blog entry by lizziep

I went looking for the archives but wasn't able to find them, although I had suspected that this might happen.I checked out the Civic Museum, where I was sad to hear that photos weren't allowed. It was a pretty museum with darkly painted ceilings that resembled some of the ...

Searching for the best Brunello di Montalcino

A travel blog entry by gretchenart


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.
