Today was our cooking day. Lesley picked us up and drove us to her house in another nearby village. She is from England , but has lived in Italy for 11 years. She had Lisenna helping, who only spoke Italian. We made 4 courses. For our antipasti we made La Ribollita, or Tuscan bean soup. Our first course was gnocchi with a cheese sauce. We added spinach and tomato paste to some of the potato to make them green, red and white. Our second ...

... with lots of outdoor restaurants in several busy Piazzas. We also drove to Le Celle of St. Francis. It was a monastery built about 1211 by St. Francis and his followers as a place to come and pray. The "cells" were big enough for a bed, table and chair.

Once we got our bearings we realized that we were just a few blocks from where we wanted to be - the main square of the "old" town, Piazza Garibaldi. We stopped at a charming little sidewalk cafe for a lunch of insalata di mar and ravioli di pescia. Yum!

We wrapped up the second day of our Tuscan tour along the Tyrrhenian Sea, on the coastal road that leads ...

The Palio Trial #1

After enjoying a relaxing morning wandering the streets of Cortona, it was time to move on to Siena. Siena is one of the "bigger" small towns of Tuscany. While it certainly is not as big as Florence, it is much bigger than Cortona. While I'm sure there are lots of other reasons to spend time in Siena, right now The Palio is the draw. The Palio is a bare-back horse race around the main piazza. The competitors are 10 of the city's 17 "contradas" (neighborhoods is the best way ...
