Another Detour Bike Travel - Italy Travel Writing and Photos by Leigh Pate - April 30, 2014September 3, 2015 How fortunate to miss the train in Siena! Today we biked to the town of San Gimignano. Nosed around a few hours and rode toward the town of Certaldo. Which was only a train station on the map. But riding into town Certaldo turned out to be a perfect Tuscan hill town perched on a hill with walls and a castle. So tempting. So we found the old mid-evil cobblestone path and hiked up to explore till it’s time to catch the last train to Lucca. Which we won’t miss this time. Really. And now I am sitting in a cafe fortifying before exploring this gorgeous town I’d never heard about before. And the not knowing makes it so much better.
