Back to Milan

On the 5th of October some of us went to Terra Bianca Winery in the morning while others wandered the roads of the area. This winery is run be a family from Switzerland and is very clean and organized. We met most of the group for lunch at a wonderful restaurant on a hillside near Gaiole. We had dinner at another restaurant we were interested in and had more good food.

On the morning of the 6th Katrin had to leave to return to Switzerland. It was wonderful to see her closer to her home. Some of us went to San Gimignano in the morning and then to Siena while others spent the entire day in Siena. The sights and colors in both cities were wonderful and in San Gimignano we had the added treat of market day. It was fun to be in Siena and sit on the Plazza where they have the annual horse races. The Duomo/Cathedral in Siena is magnificent and the audio tour is quite good. We ended the day with a dinner cooked by Mimi at the villa.
