This was supposed to be a 1/2 day outing..........but We started early in the morning after a lovely salad, grilled vegetables, sausage ( from yesterday), ham and egg breakfast. Sue cooked up a storm! We had heard that we needed to park outside the city wall for the day and walk in. Paid parking of course as car spaces are at a premium. We enjoyed the beautiful sunny clear morning drive but were not expecting the traffic, narrow windy streets and congestion of outside of the wall. It was ...

Part one of our trip through the Tuscan countryside took us to the town of Volterra. Located some 50 kilometers (30 miles) southwest of Florence, there is no direct route between the two cities.

site was by the sea (800m) so the temperature was slightly better than inland. We chose this site as it was near to two cities we wanted to visit, Lucca and Pisa.

The bus isn't going to be here for how long?!

... get off at Saline. When we reached Saline, once again, we didn't know where to go. Thankfully, when we got off, our train friend was waiting to point us in the right direction. We all laughed as we ran to catch our next train. When the train pulled up, I thought they were joking. It was a teensy, rickety, two car train. As we sat on the constantly rattling train, we laughed and tried to pass the time. We took the train to Cecina, where we discovered that we would ...
