Doing the Eroica?

I may attempt it on my Hetchins next year.....

You must visit the Town of Greve in Chianti, the town square has a statue of the explorer Amerigo Vespucci, the man who your fine Continent was named after...

Nice little bars and Pizza places around wonderful town square. Fantastic deli with incredible underground cheese store that must go back to the days before old Amerigo set sail....

Also a little way and fine bike ride away at Lucolena - Al Borgo Antico truly great restaurant in fab position overlooking a valley upholstered with the Chiati Classico vinyards ...has rooms....

I can reccommend Papardelle with the Duck or the Wild Boar sauce.....

Tell Franco the parton that Marcantonio sends his best wishes from London......
