... choice but to skip out! It's not like we didn't try a few times to pay. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and for the next 3 hours we learned all about the Catterdrale, Libereria Piccolomini, the Pailo - the bareback horse race which was going to be run in a weeks time and the 17 contrada of the city who are vying for the horse race - a kind of state of origin type rivalry.

We decided to go with a family-owned winery because we'd like to see how the little guys do it in Tuscany and I must say the family-owned estate was jaw dropping. The driveway was lined with cypress trees and the views from the winery were incredible. We were off to a great start.
