    Initially we noticed this hotel on a web site promoting last minute deals and it was offering a room including breakfast for €39 where every other hotel in the region was around 80 to 130 range. We decided not to book on line but just turn up and check it out first. On arrival we were pleased to find that there were still rooms available but the asking price now was €49 including breakfast. We did ask about the €39 deal but was politely told that was on line and last night , we tried to haggle but without joy. Still at €49 it was a good deal so we took two rooms between the four of us. The rooms were a good size not big but enough room to be comfortable. The bathrooms and linen were very clean and the heating was working well. A little too well in fact we turned down the room heating and opened the windows to cool the rooms down which made it very comfortable. The remainder of the hotel however was very warm and we found this uncomfortable. We were here in Early November so the outside temp was cool and the pool was not an option. There is a busy road at the front but with the double glazed windows the noise was not noticeable, until we opened the windows to cool the room, but at night no issues at all. The staff were all friendly and eager to help us, with directions and any other questions we had, the language barrier was not an issue, the hotel reception manager spoke very good English. Breakfast was very good offering a selections of cereals and breads cold meats cheese, pastries yogurts, fresh fruit and tea and coffee. Overall we were very happy write the hotel and its staff and would stay here again no problem. As for location it was a 20 minute walk up to the old city or a bus from outside the hotel for around €3 very well located.

    ... certain streets blocked off because they got too close to a certain contradas stable where there were members posted up guarding the horse 24/7.
    The race day itself was of course incredible. A several hour long medieval parade led up to the main event, with somwhere around 15,000 people packed into the plazza, as Steve would put it, we were 'nuts to butts' for hours, sweltering in the sun. Paramedics could be seen hauling people off that ...

    ... children, annoyed that we had to pay to enter the San Gimignano Cathedral and even more annoyed that I had to wear 'modesty blankets’ into said Cathedral and then be followed by a clearly bored, Italian official in case I shed my stupid, stupid blankets. BTW: this Cathedral was also made up of black and white marble in Collingwood style. San Gimignano also takes first prize for the worst ham and cheese toasted sandwich I have ever had in my entire life. ...

    ... di Rignana. Finally after not going far enough several times we find the tiny sign to Fattoria di Rignana winery and take the treacherous dirt road down steep slopes to the winery and old farm house. This was easily our favourite place to stay among a group of great places. The views of the Chianti valley were amazing and if it had been warm enough we would have been swimming in the infinity pool instead of strolling the vineyards and olive ...

    Well today we are in Italy. Yesterday we left the french riviera and drove to Pisa. Stopped off and saw the leaning tower - quite bizzare really that with all the inventions in the world the still cant straighten the leaning tower. I guess it wouldt be a tourist destination if it was just the Tower of Pisa! Boring. Had some retail therapy yet again - got some dior and prada handbags and gucci, chanel and armani sunnies. Gotta luv ...

    ... when you travel. Helps give many perspectives to one's travels. After lunch, we went to Santa Croce (Holy Cross Church - the Franciscan church) which was exquisite. Michelangelo and Machiavelli are buried there. The last stop was special - the Uffizzi gallery. Every room has a treasure from some past century. It's very humbling to see such great works of art in ...
