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.

The plan was to rent bikes and ride about 20 km to another town on the lake, then take a ferry back. We finally found the bike trail. It was fairly flat, but after a while the signs had the trail continue on a very busy two lane road. We tried it, ...

... thinking that we are going to have to pull out the phone (and tell Giacomo that we are on a trail under a bunch of trees) when coming toward us are a young couple carrying a baby. After a few pleasantries, we ask if we are on our way to Rocca d'Orcia. Oh yes, they respond, it’s just on the other side of the hill.
