Went on a tour to San Giamignano, Siena and a winery. San Giamignano was the favorite. It is a small walled city little changed from medievil times. At least in the look of the buildings. 13 fortified towers still exist. Like old Florence there are few if any
Siena has a large piazza and its own Duomo. It is ornate but not as large or
impressive as Florence and the dome is not very visible.
The winery was fun. Learned how balsamic vinegar was made too.
