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.

... From 1260-1348 Siena was a major banking and trade center, and had military power in the same class with Florence, Venice and Genoa.

We began our last morning in Rome with a brisk 20-minute, up-hill walk to the rental car pick-up with our luggage. We picked up our mini-van and thanks to Brian's driving and Claibourne's navigation, we made our way out of Rome. We had an unexpected interruption when we were stopped for 30 minutes on the autostrada due to an overturned orange truck. We finally made our way to the small town of Orvieto, on the border of Umbria and Tuscany.
