So of course I obeyd and did just that.
Day 6 I took a drive to a nearby town called Vinci, Leonardo Da Vinci's homeplace. A really pitoresque town and pretty. Did the centre of town first and the 2 museums there were and then walked up the hill to see his birthplace.
In hindsight I wished I would have taken my rental car...boy it was hot that day.
3,5 km and HOT HOT HOT outside and all uphill and not the very best road...sums up to a very stupid thing to do. Don't think I have been panting for air like I did...
But it was somewhat worth it....the scenery was beautiful and I found a hotel I want to stay in the next time I venture back to Tuscany.
Here are a few photos from that day:

Ended the day watching the sunset by the hotel while taking a leisurly walk in the chill evening air....
Stay tuned for day 7
