Rachel and I took a day trip to Siena. In a classic Rachel/Elle move, we opted not to pay the 2 euros for a map at the train station because we figured we'd find a cheaper one somewhere else. First of all, it was the most bizarre Willy Wonka-esqe train station. There were at least 15 sets of escalators to get to the top. I'm not sure how this was possible, but it was. At each level, we were like, wait, what? How? Second of all, my retrospective self is palm facing, thinking wtf- why would I not have paid 2 euros?!
We never found a cheaper map, so we guessed our way into the city. On our way from the train station, we wandered into the cutest restaurant, Il Vinaio, and stopped for lunch. We ate the most delicious pumpkin sage ravioli and drank the cheapest, best chianti. Rachel and I never quite knew how much wine we were ordering and were always so pleasantly surprised at how far our euro or two got us (in this case a huge carafe). Good thing we didn't buy the map ;)
