    ... This sloping, fan-shaped public square is the site of the Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall), with the unmistakable Torre del Mangia, a 300-foot-tall tower rising by its side.

    Twice each year, for the past 600-years, the peace and tranquility of this square turns into mayhem, when the Palio di Siena is held. Ten horses and bareback riders, dressed in the appropriate colors of the city ward (“contrada”) each one represents, make a mad dash around the square in ...

    ... a "prego" off he went. What came back was one glass of water and one glass of red wine. We smiled and said no...half liter...mezzo! He smiled, went away and some long time later came back with a giant liter of water (still) thank God and a huge liter of red wine...yikes...now what, oh well, just drink up I'm sure we'll find a toilet later.
