    Day 14. Volterra.

    August 18, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Susie got to wear her new clothes. Most of her clothes were for trekking. But in Volterra she needed style.
    Breakfast at a local bakery then off to the Teatro Romano, our third attractions on the Volterra Mini Tourist Card.
    Lunch stop at a Panineria where you can choose your roll, cut meats (sliced fresh), cheeses, fresh/roasted vegetables and condiments. So delicious. We had rye roll, olive paste, Tuscan ham (like prosciutto), fresh tomatoes, roasted eggplant, pecorino cheese for 6 Euros.

    Day 13a. San Gimignano, Tuscany.

    Within the city walls of San Gimignano, in the Middle Ages there used to be 12,000 residents now there are 4,000 within the wall and 6,000 outside the wall.
    The city is encircled by 13th-century walls, its old town centres on Piazza della Cisterna, a triangular square lined with medieval houses. It has a skyline of medieval towers, including the stone Torre Grossa. The Duomo di San Gimignano is a 12th-century church with frescoes by Ghirlandaio in its Santa Fina Chapel.Read more

    Day 13. Siena to San Gimignano.

    August 17, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Breakfast included in our hostel then off to San Gimignano to see the old city of towers. Once boasting over 100 towers it now has more like 30. Wars, lightning, safety and time have gradually reduced them.
    This city is on the train and tourist route. It was very busy but still manageable. First we grabbed a schweins ohr and a gelati at a coffee shop with a toilet. We climbed the tallest tower in the cathedral square. The 360 panorama was pure tuscany; patch works of vinyards and olive groves.

    Day 13c. San Gimignano to Volterra.

    August 17, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Drove to Volterra to the old city and drove through the narrow streets to our accommodation. I found this very nerve wracking but Ron took it in his stride. Our host could not speak any English but we settled in happily. Great accommodation with fabulous room, bathroom and a share kitchen with free cold bottled water and coffee machine. La Torre Affittacamere Apartments.
    We went for a walk, looked at the stores and I bought shorts and a top.
