Where in the World? Day 5

Today we went to Volterra, Italy and visited Frantoio dei Colli Toscani olive oil mill. We learned about olive oil and how to recognize a good one. It was the longest bus ride from Florence to Volterra. The ride was narrow and steep with lots of curves. Our bus driver was fearless, as are all the drivers on the rode here.

Then we visited Badia a Coltibuono with a tour of the monastery and its wine cellars and also tasted the wines produced there.
