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. We enjoyed the beautiful sunny clear morning drive but were not expecting the traffic, narrow windy streets and congestion of outside of the wall. It was ...

Apologies for bombarding you with blog notifications, but it's been so long since I had a reliable Wi-Fi connection I thought I'd best take advantage of it while I can. As an aside, I had to book into a pricey downtown hotel to make sure you blog readers didn't go hungry for any longer than absolutely necessary, and what does it matter really if no-one pressed OPTION 1 on their handset to sponsor my stay here.

... ravioli. Oh my goodness....so good, light and very flavorful. I believe there was truffle oil drizzled over the top. Amazing! The owner offered to me a glass of "meditation" wine. It was a vintage 1967 Chianti! I have never had such wine. So light, flavorful and what a treat! Finally, they brought me also a small taste of local grappa.
