On our last day in Tuscany we lounged around at the Castello and relaxed. We did go into Greve for some lunch and to check out the flower/farmers market that they have every Sunday. We saw a Lamborghini tractor/lawn mower. Not something Americans see every day.
After more relaxing, we drove to the nearby village of Panzano to have dinner at Dario Cecchini's Officina della Bistecca. He’s a famous singing butcher and has three restaurants in Panzano. We were told ...

Another walking adveture, on a route from our travel books. It took about 7 miles, thru the workers part of town, and about 6 hours including a wonderful lunch at a quaint Italian restaurant. We had wonderful pasta dishes accompanied by what else but Tuscan merlot!!!
we stopped at a leather shop and yes, I bought another purse! And a belt (Mike bought a belt too!).
