A Chance to Travel: Scacciapensieri in Tuscany

By Joseph A. Woods

Scacciapensieri literally, scatter your thoughts. Colloquially: be carefree, take life as it comes. Checking directories of Siena hotels, Virginia and I found Villa Scacciapensieri on Scacciapensieri Road. Irresistible! It turned out to be a charming place, well run and with very good food, but it did have one significant shortcoming: it was on the outskirts. A local bus stop right outside the door did give one the pleasant feeling of becoming part of the community, but that was hardly an adequate substitute for being at the very center of the things one came to see and do. It’s no surprise that Gohagan Travel has chosen more wisely.
