La Fortezza is a 16th century fortress built to defend Sienese from the attacking Florentines. It's walls are so high and wide that there are now mature trees planted along the tops and it is a popular park of sorts. Inside is currently a Luna Park and wine bars. The sight of the 11th century Duomo tower peeking over the 16th century walls housing the 21st century Terminator was a mix of contrasts that tickled my fancy!
Liz then led us on a walk through the Basilica di San Domenico - the church of Saint Catherine of Siena
Then a bit more walking through the streets, a bit more eating and drinking in cafes and a bit of siesta time... Walking in 30oC is hot work.
For the first time since Canada, I spent a night in - salad for tea with Italian TV. Without being able to understand a single word, Italian 'Funniest Home Videos' proved that children, animals and people doing stupid things has universal appeal.
