2006 Trip - Italy - Tuscany - A Visit to Montepulciano

Saturday 5-27-06

We are off to Montepulciano today. Tried to follow the highway signs, but we made a lot of wrong turns, so it took awhile to get there. Found a free parking lot at the north edge of town (1 hour only) and walked thru town.

My friend's boss knows Italy well and really knows good food and wine! So, our goal was to visit another restaurant on his list, Ristorante Le Logge del Vignola. We did find it, but it was closed. Couldn't figure out why because we were there during their posted business hours. Oh well!

Instead, we sat outside at Pozzo di Pulcinella and had a nice lunch, with lots of people-watching.

It took us awhile to get back to Montalcino, but oh the beautiful countryside we saw!

Just snacked for dinner again. We are really comfortable in our little apartment!

Nancy, I'm sorry that you were not able to sample Ristorante Le Logge del Vignola as it is one of our favorites in Montepulicano. Your boss is totally correct about it. But--next time :)

I am also sorry you missed out eating at Ristorante Le Logge del Vignola. I spent a few nights in Montepulciano many years ago and loved my dinner there. Beautiful town also. I enjoyed your photos. Brought back nice memories.
