first driving adventure was to Siena, a popular hilltop city
|Siena is known for its cathedral or "Duomo"
|One of the distinguishing features of the Duomo, interior and exterior,
are the alternating stripes of light and dark marble.
Our first task in Siena, though, was food (and wine). So we found a little trattoria in a "bucca."

After visiting the Duomo,
|One of the most popular hilltop cities in
Tuscany, Siena is known for it's large town square and the annual
horse races around that square
