Restaurants on the Campo in Siena

We returned to Siena on our final full day in Tuscany. The warm sunny weather provided a much different experience from our first visit. As before, we approached the city from the south, but drove closer to the city and parked in a covered lot. We had a short uphill walk into the city in the university area. Groups of students had decorated various automobiles and drove them through the narrow streets of the city – obviously some sort of graduation ritual. My BW had some last minute shopping. In general, she found the quality, styling and prices of silver and gold jewelry to be better than in Florence.

We had lunch in one of the Campo restaurants see photo, certainly one place in Tuscany where Italian is seldom heard. Everybody there is a tourist. We had conversations with honeymooners from Toronto, ex-pat Brits living in the US over for a holiday, and several Americans. The British ex-pats had booked their trip with Citalia, a well-known British travel company.

On our way back we stopped at Caseificio Cugusi between Pienza and Montepulciano and sampled their delicious Pecorino di Pienza cheeses. We brought back two wheels, one of which we managed to save for several months.

We had our final dinner in the very good restaurant at Villa Nottola.
