Siena Hostel is proud to present : Picnic in Monteriggioni!
Town of Monteriggioni is far from the abyss that Dante was talking about, although its founders- Sienese were expecting it to be a strong defence tool and as such abyss for their eternal rival – Florence.
“A woman who can eat a real bruschetta is a woman you can love and who can love you. Someone who pushes the thing away because it’s messy is never going to cackle at you toothlessly across the living room of your retirement cottage or drag you back from your sixth heart attack by sheer furious affection. Never happen. You need a woman who isn’t afraid of a faceful of olive oil for that.”
We all got out of the room with smile on our faces and mind rolling up and down the sunny hills. Good day.
If wine is a bottled poetry, the Chianti then is a home of the Nobelists.
Any day you get a chance to sit on the street of Tuscan city, with wine in your hand and smell of garlic bread in your nostrils consider it a hell of a good day.
