Arrived at the hotel and welcomed by very friendly staff. Rooms absolutely great, clean, in Traditional style and ideally located just 20 mins from the main Piazza I'll Campo which housed all the cafe/restaurant bars.

... of wine & how stringent it is for winemakers to attain the D.O.C.G. label, which is certified wine from the region (in this case, certified Chianti Classico).

San Gimignano is a beautiful and bizarre town filled with towers that had no purpose other than to compare wealth. We now know that "compensating" for something...is not a new concept. Siena is lovely Siena...and my love is represented in ...
... it is filled with hordes of tourists, lovely little cafes lining the square and every seat taken. We wander off in search of more shopping. The prices are more reasonable here in comparison to Florence and the workmanship is beautiful. In our waunderings we find the Duomo, a lovely dark green stripped church dating from 1215. Streets here are lined with flags, and iron rings to tether horses. I love the ambience of this city, it's high perch on the hills and all ...
