There's this town in Italy set among the Tuscan hills that's full of tourists. Lots of them. More in the summer but even in October it's busy. Ice-creams dripping in the heat, red shoulders in the sun and all that. We went too. Walked around a bit gandering at this and that, snapping at the other. The church place - Siena Duomo - is a magnificent confection. Black and white marble in and out - although we only saw the outside on account of the hoards going inside. All the same it was too hot and I was surprised the church didn't melt.
We even saw some L'Eroica escapes here.
