Another day, another high speed train. The chaos of Rome Termini.
Into Firenze just long enough to get the car (an Opel), then drove to San Gimignano, via a dirt road and a nice highway. San Gimignano is a medieval hill town that is pedestrian only. We rented a VRBO here, a really nice apartment off the Main Street and Duomo piazza.
Big thunder cloud dumped torrential rain for about two hours late evening, but we were eating boar and fennel salami and drinking the local wine so we didn’t care AT ALL. Shops galore, selling high quality leather, florentine ceramic dishes and papers.
