    Siena. Been there. Old, and not.

    April 22, 2017 in Italy

    Do you remember the 13th to 15th century? The Sienese sure do. They rocked the world back then, with supersize cathedral attempts and supercivil government. Now it's dukeing it out 21c style with astounding art and aravicious retail outlets. 13c; bring it back....

    We parked the camper on the edge of town and caught a bus in. We visited the city square, the Duomo, a traditional cafe, and walked back through the city to the bus stop. Couldn't find the right bus back - and rode for over an hour through very working class areas of Siena.Read more

    Siena

    December 9, 2017 in Italy

    Siena is a very beautiful and ancient city. We are staying in the attic of a 15th century old building. We were hungry when we arrived. Fortunately, good friends of ours brought us instant laksa that had travelled from Singapore to Perth then onto Italy. Yummy warming and comfort food!!!
    It was cold and windy when we arrived with temperatures dipping down to -5*.
    We were quite awe struck to find old mediaeval streets all culminating onto Piazza del Campo.
    It is probably the biggest Campo we have come across yet.

    Siena

    December 13, 2017 in Italy

    Today we must have been hungry, cold and dateless tourists. Here are the reasons.

    We went to the locals market this morning that sold mainly clothes and homeware but also some food. We quickly walked through the clothes and homeware to find the food. The food was mostly fruits and vegetables and fish but there were a few stalls that sold hot food. Hot whole chicken, Pork shanks and various deep fried goods. We bought fruits and vegetables for dinner and got given free lemon and parsley. Then we got breakfast. We were given extra meat in our delicious Suckling Pig roll and got many free tastings. The store holder handed us an Italian calendar saying it was a souvenir. We must have needed dates for 2018. A whole calendar full of dates.

    We found a sock lady at the market selling socks designed with bugs, cows, pigs and many other interesting designs. We bought 6 pairs of fun socks and got given 4 free frightfully ugly yellow socks - “[pointing to four of us] uni, dos, tres, quattro, [1,2,3,4] present!”. We were freezing but didn’t think we showed it enough to be given free socks and I thought 5 layers rugged me up enough. Apparently not.

    Later that morning we stumbled upon another food market for the celebration of Santa Lucia. It was like the Sideshow alley lolly vans at the Perth royal show but Italian. Filled with Italian sweets from nougat to fudges to cakes to lollies. As we made our way through the markets, we got handed free tasters from almost every store.

    So, super full and almost rolling from all the free food, we made our way to the Duomo (Siena Cathedral) art galleries for a quiet afternoon.

    After Swee and I finished at the galleries, we proceeded on an accidental 4km walk around Siena. Accidental because we just kept getting lost through the beautiful side streets and alleys that Siena has to offer.

    Siena by night

    September 20, 2017 in Italy

    Efter att ha lämnat Badia en andra gång körde vi till Siena och parkerade utanför Roman Gate. Fick bra guidning av vår hyresvärd för natten - Lorenzo. Hyrde del i lägenhet för bra pris med utsikt över både Duomo och tornet på Piazza del Campo.
    Gick ut och tittade lite på stan, åt gott på Prosciutteria Prétto och avslutade med en gelato.
