Other attractions of the area were restaurants, ancient hamlets, wine-tasting stalls, wineries, butcher's shops... as you can guess, we didn't hold back on both eating and drinking. Unfortunately, I got utterly wasted on the second day and couldn't enjoy the rest so much. On the return trip we could experience the world famous Italian highways: over one hour queue, and we took the less busy route.
Anyway, I changed a bit the blog header's look (and it was a pain in the back with all those span and style tags refusing to work) and added a quote from the economist and philosopher Henry George, which comes via The Smallest Minority. More profund articles will possibly come.
