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.

The travel books don't warn you about the …

Sickness, but trudging on to Montepulciano anyway!

... vending machine outside the building. Because. Well. We've seen a bunch of them outside pharmacies here. And it's an interesting custom. Probably a good idea -- better than the awkward time spent at the register with a box of condoms I suppose.

We came back to our little paradise for our last night here and I let Lizzie get some more sleep while I drove back out to Pienza to find us dinner. I went into one shop to see if we could get some pasta takeaway (fortunately, ...

... top. We saw some interesting art, mostly depicting scenes from the bible and then had a quick stop in the cathedral.

The kids had earlier seen some gelato and were keen to try some. It looked very inviting as it was piled high and there were many flavours to choose from. With gelato in hand we made our way back to the car to begin the search for a possible new place to stay.

The gps unfortunately didn’t get us there but ...

... Hope it comes through. Rules for dressing - none! American children learn to make outfits match by matching their Garanimals. Marketing genius! Remember how it goes? If your shirt has a monkey tag and your pants have a monkey tag, then they go together. Don't wear a monkey shirt with giraffe pants. Here, it seems, you have to have one piece of clothing from each animal in the zoo! It's really sort ...

after this i caught the bus into town to do some proper sightseeing. The town centre is very nice and i gradually made my way towards the Piazza del Campo which is one of coolest piazzas ive seen. Its all on a slant leaning towards the palazzo and bell tower at one end. people were lying down and chilling to the max on the floor and the cafes around the edge it was really nice. had a look in the museum in ...

    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.
