Sickness, but trudging on to Montepulciano anyway!

... that we went through Pienza on our way and I offered to stop at the pharmacy for Lizzie so we could get her some throat lozenges. We stopped, but unfortunately, they were closed. As we rounded the bend from our parking spot in Montepulciano, we found another farmacia, but unfortunately, it was also closed. It would be open in about a half an hour.

A travel blog entry by jarvis07

For our last full day in Cortona we decided to stay in our apartment and have a bit of a lazy day. We had a bit of a sleep in because we were a bit tired from our late night.
