... Greve in Chianti... We got lost almost immediately, despite having a GPS. Don't ask! Between asking for directions and stopping for road side food, our 2.5 hour drive ended up taking about 4.5 hours. The last hour of our drive was through rolling valleys, vineyards and hillside villages so who cares?!? We weren't in a rush and enjoyed the scenery all the way to Greve in Chianti. The scenery in Chianti is the most beautiful we have ever seen in our lives. The most picturesque ...

I did have a map and remembered that the nearest town by our hotel was Figline (since we would be getting the train to Florence there). I wanted to stop at the train station there to check the train schedules for the next day and buy our tickets for our trip to Florence. We had an early tour booked so wanted to make sure we ...

She said she would be surprised if we didn't cough. 15 seconds later we had a full room of people trying not ...
... couple on one side who were traveling for 7 weeks for their honeymoon who we conversed with for a while once the wine enhanced our communication skills and sex appeal. We also talked awhile with a couple on our other side who were from Chi-Town (Chicago Lisa) on a weekend vacation from Greece where they have been living for the past 8 months in a hotel due to the guy's job.
