Afternoon in Montepulciano, Italy

EN: Montepulciano is a medieval town in the province of Siena, Italy. Just like many towns in the region, Montepulciano is known for its high-quality wine and cheeses.
Unfortunately we weren’t able to experience the gastronomy of this lovely town, and we had to walk around feeling quite hungry. The exploration of this charming town was overshadowed by our sense of hunger and the lack of ANY open restaurants, cafes or pizzerias in the 15:00 – 19:00 interval.
We were planning to have lunch in the city (who travels on a full stomach?), so we arrived at around 14:30. At 15:00 everything was pretty much closed, you are able to get drinks only. We did not really expect to see something like this in a popular tourist destination… I guess that’s part of the Italian experience as well.

RO: Montepulciano este un orăşel medieval din provincia Siena, Italia. Ca şi alte oraşe de acest tip din această regiune, Montepulciano se caracterizează prin mâncăruri şi băuturi de calitate. Însă, spre nenorocul nostru nu am reuşit să ne bucurăm de această parte gastronomică a oraşului, ba chiar mai mult am stat flămânzi dea binelea. Deci, toată frumuseţea oraşului într-un final a fost umbrită de foametea care ne apucase şi de lipsa de restaurante/cafe/pizzerii deschise. Nu ne-am putut vreodată gândi că chiar şi în zonele turistice la italieni nu le lucrează restaurantele, decât la amiază pe vreo oră-două şi seara după şapte-opt.
În fine, dacă mergeţi în aşa zone, aveţi grijă să vă aşezaţi la o măsuţă până la orele două, că de nu, stai cu stomacul gol până seara. :)
