We had a wonderful day. Gianni picked us up from our hotel in Sienna (right on time) and suggested a route we might like - we hadn't prearranged anything preferring to decide on things on the go. From start to finish Gianni pointed out to us little things that we would never have noticed had we driven ourselves around. Things like the famous winding Cyprus road, the stories behind the frescos on the walls in the Archabbey of Monte Oliveto, the differences in distance to Sienna on the two opposite road signs in San Quirco, the story behinds the sloping church floor in Pienza and how the township came about, the stories behind the warm springs filtration system in Bagno Vigoni and the various township/village challenges held each year - just a few examples. Gianni's passion for Tuscany made the day a wonderful one pulling over to answer questions or enable photographs and was at our service the whole day. Oh - and lunch was a delight of local fare we would never have experienced if we had not been taken there with Gianni. We highly recommend spending a day - or even two - with Gianni or one of his guides - it will be well worth it and well remembered.
