... escalators. Crazy!!!! Apparently it was only finished in 2011! I couldn't imagine doing what we did via stairs. The steepness of the hill is quite intense!
We FINALLY reached the top! Just to the left as you come out there is a lovely little view over Siena. As we had our luggage we just wanted to get to the accommodation first. It was only a few minutes walk before we were there. We called the owner and we made our way in.
We went into the 'lobby' ...
