Dog On Motorcycle – Italy through the eyes of a motorcyclist and his awesome dog - Part 2.
Part II: Romantic Tuscany and Rome
13:00 - 09 February 2017
Brigi, the coolest Biker Beagle and his owner’s adventure continues through Italy. The next destinations of their round trip: romantic Tuscany, Rome and the Vatican City. Come and join us on a great journey to see Italy through the eyes of a motorcyclist and his four-legged travel mate.
What does it feel like to travel with your dog on a motorcycle? Especially abroad. Brigi, the Beagle and his daddy, Gyuri hopped on their motorcycle – and they headed straight to magnificient Italy! In the first part of our travel series they shared some moments of the preparation, their plans and the departure – and we gained useful tips about travelling with a dog. (In case you missed the article, click here to read the first part.) Their adventure continues and their next destinations are Tuscany, Rome and the Vatican City. Gyuri gives us an insight into some of the most exciting moments of their trip, as well as sights, accomodation and important information. Enjoy their journey and admire their stunning travel photos!
We arrived to the next destination of our trip: Tuscany! We were lucky to find real habitats by the water and landscapes similar to that of the Lake Tisza. Obviously we couldn’t miss Florence, though we were warned not to use the motorcycle in town. Keeping this in mind we headed to the Michelangelo Square. It seemed to be a great idea as it provides an amazing view of the town. Passers-by greeted us while we were taking photos – or to be more precise, they greeted Brigi. Some of her Hungarian fans have just arrived to Florence in a tou rbus. Around noon the ground was getting (literally) too hot under our feet, so we hit the road to San Gimignano. According to the original plan we would use the same route back home, so two days should be enough to explore Tuscany, I thought.
Tuscany is beautiful. Of course I had no doubts about it but it’s always better to learn the truth (in person) behind such and attractive cliché. Staying there would have been perfect if we’d had a week or two: drinking Italian wine and tasting delicious cheese in springtime or early summer but before the harvest, by all means. Which happened to be going on during our trip... The stubble-fields were still untouched so I managed to take a few nice shots of the landscape.
Luckily I found a smaller campsite in San Gimignano. They had only two free places meaning that the whole area was crowded. Well, due to the high number of guests it seemed no problem for the operators if some of the visitors made up their mind and left the site in their attempt to find a friendlier place to stay. The hospitality was just a little bit far from radiant, to say so.
Oor next accomodation made it up to us for the unpleasant experience, though. As we continued our trip to Rome I planned to stay at the nearby Lake Bracciano. I found a lovely little campsite at the lakeside. Everywhere we go, Brigi usually gets a warm welcome at the reception but here they even handed us a nice brochure in Hungarian language and the staff was very kind to us. However – as far as I can remember – they offered fresh water only to the dog, not me. Anyway, I already got used to being dismissed, when it comes to the question whether we are thristy or not. I found the pizza quite delicious, the prices were solid. Rome’s water-supply is provided by this lake and it is the perfect place for recreation. If you are planning to visit the Eternal City but would like to avoid the crowd, staying in Bracciano will be the best choice, as you can travel to town using public transport.
Get ready for the next part of the extraordinary couple’s adventure.
