There was no address at which to meet. We arrived 15 minutes before 9am with vague instructions to meet near Porta Camollia, even after 2 phone calls. Jacapo arrived on his bike at 9, THEN took 15 min. to outfit us with bikes. Perhaps I had the wrong idea, but I thought we were to get a guided tour. He had very little to offer about the city. We did cover a lot of ground and see sights, a few of which he identified. We asked a lot of questions, but he was limited in his ability to answer or understand us. Told us we should hire a tour guide. At 11am, when we were to be back at our beginning point, we were on the opposite side of Siena with his plans to ride more and see more churches. We needed to be back, so missed that. Jacabo was personable, but limited. The price was VERY overpriced for what we received. We were disappointed.
I truly enjoyed this day. The guides were very good and I learned a lot. I had been ready for this, having read a little about both places, knowing some history and the layout of the towns. The connection from Siena worked well.
Kelly and I thoroughly this class with 4 others! We spent 5 hours with Lella, her assistant, and interpreter, all who love cooking. It was fun and comfortable as Lella led us through the steps to make a gourmet meal. We learned so much! It was exciting to be a part of this and to bring back the recipes we had made. We all got to help in making the parts of the meal and then enjoyed the meal with each other and Lella's special wine! What a great memory!! Lella is a treasure.
