We enjoyed a very quiet night on the lake at Marta. A very late start this morning we have our usual coffee and some fruit before going for a walk along the lake for almost an hour. Given its location it is hard to believe there is so much undeveloped lake front land along here.
Back at the Hymer we have breakfast, service the usual things that need to be done and pay our €10. A motorhome friendly parking spot in Pitigliano is in the GPS and we are on our way.
It’s after mid-day by the time we arrive in Pitigliano, the car-park has no shade. For some silly reason we decide to walk into town. We saw a sign to the centro, before we turned for the car-park, so we head in that direction.
Lunch was as good as it gets, over a couple of glasses of vino and a local blonde birra. It was only after we ordered, we noted the Michelin symbols for 7 years running on the door, no wonder it was more expensive. We had our fill for €65, which was excellent value really. So we do the long walk up to the car-park where the Hymer has been sitting in the sun for 3 hours. We don’t dally, getting on the road for Sorano about 10 klms away. Fifteen minutes later we find a lovely shady spot next to a grove of pine trees and have a post big lunch nap.
It’s a little embarrasing. We suddenly realise we should be in Sovana, not Sorano. Bugger, its not far about another 8 klms. So a quick tidy up and where back on the road.
