Trip Report Our Day Trip in Tuscany

Jump to last reply

Following up on my report of our stay in Montalcino (http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/amazing-resort-stay-near-montalcino.cfm), we used our travel day after leaving Castiglion del Bosco to visit Siena, Monterrigio and San Gimignano. The first is a must-see, of course; the second was very charming and while I know it is heresy to say this, I wasn't as thrilled with the third. So overrun with tourists in San Gimignano (yes, I know I am the pot calling the kettle black here...)

My main takeaway from the day was that each and every little Tuscan hamlet has its own character, albeit some of them ever-so-slightly tarnished by the impact all of us visitors. Grumbling aside, I would go back to any and all of them in a heartbeat!

For anyone who's interested, I've posted photos and details of our day trip here: https://polloplayer.wordpress.com/2015/12/05/a-day-trip-in-tuscany/
