Escaping from San Giorgio

e79 road

Getting from San Giorgio across to Florence or to Rome by car is a pain. It takes so long as for a lot of the journey you are on single lane roads going over the Appenines where overtaking the lorries having to use the same route is dangerous. Twenty years ago they started to build a dual carriageway from Fano to Grosseto on the other coast. Work got so far and the stopped. Now the governors of Marche, Tuscany and Umbria have started to campaign for the road to be finished. A few weeks ago they held a well publicised sit-in in one of the tunnels. Since then they have been meeting the relevant ministers and insisting that they will continue to keep the issue in the public eye.

Who knows,perhaps in a few years we may be able to get to Sienna for coffee, Florence for lunch and home for tea.
