Agriturismo Costa Etrusca
Travel Blogs from San Vincenzo
We've been without Wi-Fi for almost a week now so I'm quite behind on my blog. I kept notes so you'll see about 4 entries all at once.
Leaving Florence was much easier than driving into the city. After a quick breakfast at the hotel we retrieved the car from the garage and were on our way back out to the Tuscan country side. We were heading to Volterra but we stopped in Siena along the way. Siena is known for their medieval style horse racing. ...
... we first came here.
As we motor around you can see the beautiful coastline of the Med. We have a swim then get some lunch and sit looking out over the Med. Sorry, you are probably salivating but this hopefully is respite from the dreadful weather we hear is happening back home?
So eventful day came to an end in the shape of us docking back at the marina.................
Just about to jump off the boat to secure the line when ...
Settled earlier than 900 BC, Volterra is a treasure.
It has been continually inhabited since the end of the 8th century BC
It has Etruscan and Roman Ruins aplenty, great views to the valleys below, very good wine and eateries.
It is a beautiful town situated 40kms west of Siena. Because of its location the drive there, especially from the West is truly superb
Next time you are in Tuscany take a day out and spend some time in this place.
... our way to San Gimignano first, a nice little town on a mountain with fortresslike buildings. After that cruised to Siena, which was very impressive with the steep streets and the views of the cathedral and the huge circular main square!
... a barley/rice dish, other vegetables, two kinds of pasta, and dessert. I was stuffed after the second course... I don't know how I managed to eat the last two.
And to top the day off, we got to jump on a trampoline which is something I haven't done since sophomore year of high school. It was so fun (even though it probably wasn't best for my stomach)!
Needless to say, it was an absolutely amazing day and I can't believe I actually lived a fairytale for a day.
