DAY 16: Volterra & Siena

... stop by the main piazza - Piazza de Campo. This a huge public space - easily 100 meters across - is THE place to see and be seen in Siena. It seems that everyone either comes here to stroll in the evening, or comes to sit and watch other people stroll. This is a fabulous public space, with an impressive public building, Palazzo Pubblico, overlooking it.

We wrap up our first day in the Tuscan countryside with dinner ...

... red Tuscan wine we bought yesterday. Re-Energized, we head up the street to the Etruscan Museum. It contains artifacts from the Etruscans dating back to 1500 B.C.

David, however familiar due to being such a ...

The bus isn't going to be here for how long?!

A travel blog entry by skipper_33

... had NO CLUE where we were, but we realized our bus wasn't going to be there for an hour. We were all cold and confused. Across the street we saw the city square and decided to go check it out. There were vendors set up everywhere, just like in Florence. A jewelry vendor laughed with us when we asked him what city we were in. He told us we were in Calzedonia. None of us had any idea where that was, but we decided to enjoy our short time there none-the-less. We ...
