Travel Blogs from Siena


A travel blog entry by wheatiegirl


We hit our first major bump in the trip. Upon arrival in Siena, the bus driver dropped us in a plaza (convenient for him to purchase his cigarettes and lotto ticket) but miles from where we were supposed to be.

I am sure there are some lovely people in Siena - but I just haven't met many.

Bye bye Tuscany, hello Roma!

... and dry. Job done! Then to a tour office as we only have 3 days here before off to the Amalfi Coast. Booked the hop on hop off for tomorrow and the Vatican and colosseum on Monday...can't go to the Vatican on a Sunday as it is closed! Will probably hit the Trevi Fountain tonight and gift a few Euro's to help pay the Italian debt. No photo's yet, so will update some tomorrow, which will include some of Tuscany. ...

Jen derails a cooking class

... our rolled dough a "perfecto" (it had to be thin enough to see the table through) and I got to eat the feast. Well, I wouldn't call the portion I was able to eat a feast, but I did eat something! The translator wondered if I might also be allergic to something in the Italians food and that's why I feel hot and nauseous when I eat. I certainly hope not! I've been here for 5.5 days and haven't had any wine and barely any food. It's like torture! We had the best bruschetta ...

Off to the Races

A travel blog entry by travelingsmith


12/29 - Today's adventure began after some light shopping in Pienza on a chilly, rainy day. We got into the car and made our way toward Siena.

We finally parked in Siena after trying a couple different routes into town. We made our way downhill to the city center, Il Campo. Il Campo is best known for its bareback Palio horse races held twice a year. The major site to be seen in Il Campo is the Palazzo Pubblico and its tall bell tower. ...

Final night in Tuscany

... to follow anyway.

After a long day, we decided to head back to Buonconvento and enjoy dinner in what has been our home for the last week. We ordered a pizza to take "home" and had a nice leisurely dinner before getting packing (and updating the blog).

Tomorrow is a long travel day...we head back to Rome to return our rental car and hop on a train to head south to Sorrento! Thanks Tuscany for the adventure and the memories!

    The hotel isn't located close to anything. The front desk staff knows nothing about the transport system (wasted an hour and a half waiting for buses that never came), and the "non-smoking" status is a joke.

    The rooms and amenities were fine. It was a good place from which to base drives into Tuscany. They seemed tied to the restaurant next door and would not give information for any other. When we tried to use that restaurant, we were rudely told that they were not open (despite the fact the door was open and lights on). Travel into the town is by bus service which is sketchy at best (we waited 90 minutes for one that never came). Despite numerous signs that smoking was forbidden, our room repeatedly filled with cigarette smoke, to the point that both my wife and I got sick. The receptionist's response was a shrug of the shoulders. I cannot imagine any scenario under which I would return to this hotel.
