View to San Dominico

Siena's Duomo

Truffled cheese at lunch

Tuesday 29th May: Part of our package included a walking tour of Siena and we booked it for late this morning. The hotel is about 3km out of the city but the bus stops at the door in both directions so it was not hard to reach the city. The bus trips were fast and furious as the Sienese bus drivers seem to run to a very tight schedule.

We found our way to the side of the Campo where we were to meet the guide and as we had time we booked a tour called Chianti and Castles for Saturday afternoon. A number of other people joined the walking tour and we set off at 11.00am with Frederica. She gave us more history of the Campo and then we walked on to the Duomo square where she pointed out the various things of interest and left us to our own devices.

As we planned on coming back on Thursday, we went back to the Campo, picked one of the restaurants around the outside and had a nice but overpriced lunch. That was enough for one day and we ambled back to Piazza Gramsci for the bus checking out a lovely delicatessen along the way. Back at the hotel, the rest of the afternoon was spent catching up on some rest and writing.
