... day in the Tuscan countryside. We started the day walking the outer perimeter of the walls that surround San Gimignano, then made our way into the main Piazza to refuel with coffee and gelato.

Back on the freeway and continue till we reach the Siena Sud turnoff where we skirted around Siena and contine along till we find the turnoff for Cuna. So far it has been fairly easy to follow the map and GPS system. We pass through the tiny village of Grand Cuna and follow the dirt road until we arrive at Il Canto del Sole.
