Vespatour 2006 Part 10: from Monteriggioni to Montieri

San GalganoMy solo-journey of the last summer, the Vespatour, continued from Florence towards southern Tuscany.

I slept one night at the Ostello del Chianti in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and I enjoyed it thanks to the people I met there: Silvia, the hostel’s manager, and Alessio, a biker from Torino.

Valentina, a girl I met in Florence, recommended me to visit the mysterious Monteriggioni stronghold and to search for the even more mysterious cats without tail living there.

So I did it, and in the evening of august 15 I also visited San Gimignano, the town with 100 towers.

The following day was no less intensive. Following a recommendation from Elisa, a friend from Como, I visited San Galgano’s Abbey and I saw the mythic sword inside the rock! 8)

Then I reached La Meridiana in Montieri in the Maremma area to bring Elisa’s greetings to Mrs. Mirella, the manager of the agritourismo.

In Palazzetto, along the road to Siena to attend the Palio, I met by chance Alberto, Angelo e Claudio, three Vespa-riders from Mantua and we lunched together.

Here are the 47 photos of the “authentically Tuscan” tenth gallery of the Vespatour! 🙂
