If you go to Siena, don’t enter through the fort. Apparently forts are not only designed to keep people out, but also in, so there weren’t any doors to let us get into the town. We backtracked out, and finally made our way in. We wandered the streets, and ended up in the Piazza do Campo, where they hold the Palio twice a year. I recommend you read up on the event, but needless to say, I’d love to be ...
There was so much packing to do, as you can imagine, we have collected a few things along the way, Laurie made me dispense with a few things since I have had a little retail therapy! All is good though and we managed to squeeze everything in.

I have no idea how far this walk is, so finally I ask a local and he tells me it's about a 1km walk, or I can drive around the commune walls, but it's better to walk as it'll be easier for me to find. But I'm so hot and bothered, I decide to drive and I'm determined to find this pool, and after some winding dirt roads and sharp turns, I pull up outside and I'm so pleased I didn't give up! The pool sits right at the top of Cortona overlooking the hillside ...
