Bye bye Tuscany, hello Roma!

A travel blog entry by 2swans

Our 5 days in Tuscany have come to an end. Farewell meal the night before at our restaurant of choice in Radda in Chianti (Le del Chianti) and had one of the best Italian meals I have ever had! We will part company with Neil and Christine for a week before joining up again in Sicily. Early rise and off to Florence to catch a train to Roma. Only 1 hour 20 minutes and we were in Roma. Hurling along at speeds up ...

Etruscans : visit to Volterra

A travel blog entry by rdumler

Quite the Day

... the bus. We weren't sure about this, but it ended up working out. We got on the bus in Volterra and the driver told us this was our stop to transfer. When we got off the bus to transfer the screen had said our bus had left two minutes ago and the next one wouldn't come for an hour. We just wanted to be home at this point. We had no idea what city we were in and it was so cold out. Of course we found a little market across the street and the vendors loved us. 7 lost ...
