Day 4 2018-10-08 Siena to Bagno Vignoni

After a welcome breakfast (I’d missed previous night’s dinner), we checked out and headed off on foot as Siena tourists.

We went to the Piazza del Campo. This famous square hosts the crazy horse race twice a year. We climbed    the 100m Torres del Mangia up the 400 steps to get a panoramic view over the square and rolling Tuscan hills.

We then enjoyed a relaxed one hour drive to the Spa area to the south east of Siena. Bagno Vignoni is a beautiful small village, with a hot spring large rectangular pool dating back to 1660. Although no longer used, it is the centerpiece of the village, surrounded by inviting outdoor restaurants. The afternoon sun was drawing patrons to enjoy the setting.
