  1. I remember Siena cake, I remember the pigeons, I remember many of the beautiful churches with their deep blue ceilings and fleur de lys gold decorations, but the fountain? No I don’t remember the fountain….

      1. I have a photo of myself feeding pigeons on the piazza del campo. I have just looked at a photo from above, I was literally by that fountain, but I don’t remember. Lovely to revisit in my mind though – wishing you all the best for 2017!
