Siena



Siena

We walked.
We drank tuscan wines.
We ate salami with fennel, pici with cheese and pepper, cookies with vino santo and other little treats.
We walked some more.
We climbed to the top of the faciata and looked down on the city and the countryside.
We gazed at the medieval friezes “Good Government” and “Bad Government.”
We walked some more.
We had apperitivi sitting on the graciously curved Piazza del Campo We attracted local families with children who stopped to play with Amalia. Who was cleaning the pavement with her knees and hands.
We drove through “la Crete” and visited a monastary blessed with freizes of Saint Benedict’s life.
We walked some more.

We returned home suntanned, tired and very much in love with the city of Siena.
