Success. Or not.

photo 2The good news: We can get to and from parking outside the Siena train station; we can buy groceries (and wine!); we have a game plan for getting into Siena tomorrow; we now have a car that seats seven – so no more getting separated in traffic; AND, our Internet is back, at least for now. The bad news:  We have done a lot of driving around, looking unsuccessfully for parking in Siena. What did we learn?  Park at the train station and take a taxi or a bus.  Do this in the morning.  As Joyce put it, “Less pissing around, more sightseeing time for us.”

Tonight we cook pasta funghi with chicken broccoletti and zucchini Toscana.  We drink wine.  We sit outside.  Life is good.

  1. What wonderful learning experience for future travel plans. Must remember to locate places to park, get a driver and car (like we did on the Amafie Coast, no problems parking) or find acceptable public transportation. Must keep in mind that older European cities are not built to accommodate automobiles.

    Glad the car is organized. All that research we did didn’t include hiring a car that broke down. If/when you go into Florence, apply the same strategy. Car park at the train station is a reasonable walk to almost anything & there are taxis.
    And remember, you must enjoy this for The Husband & me too!
