... are windy curved streets. We did however find the Grom, the pannaforte and eventually the car! Getting out of Siena was even more of a challenge. Our GPS wanted to make us turn where there were no turns. She has been very vocal on the country roads making sure that we didn't turn up roads that were not there or driveways but she was suspiciously quiet in the city streets - Italian GPS!

Today we biked to Pienza, a UNESCO world heritage town. The bike ride was not unlike climbing Everest on a bike - except it was harder. The 5 km climb to the town was a test for even the fittest rider.
