Siena And Assisi: Italy's Grand Hill Towns
series: Rick Steves' Europe
air date: 8/18/14 9:30 PM
In red-bricked Siena, we tour its innovative medieval hospital, lavish cathedral, and a bakery that makes panforte (like fruitcake, only better). Exploring the Chianti region, we taste Brunello di Montalcino--with its makers. Spending the night at a farmhouse, we meet the family and the sheep, learn of the Slow Food Movement, and enjoy a homegrown dinner. In Assisi, we follow the footsteps of St. Francis from his humble chapel to the grand basilica--frescoed by Giotto--that holds his tomb.
