“To this day Pienza remains a quintessential Renaissance town. It is a time capsule of palaces, churches, piazzas and well-ordered streets. Largely re-built in 1459, when Pope Pius II, turned his hometown into Italy’s first ‘model town.’ You will also see lots shops selling of Pecorino cheese as Pienza is the pecorino-capital of Tuscany. ”

“Built to demonstrate the enormous wealth, proud independence and secular nature of Siena, this 14th-century Gothic masterpiece is the visual focal point of the Campo, itself the true heart of the city. Architecturally clever (notice how its concave facade mirrors the opposing convex curve) it has always housed the city's administration and been used as a cultural venue. Its distinctive bell tower, the Torre del Mangia, provides magnificent views to those who brave the steep climb to the top.”

“Monteriggioni, whose stone halo shines from the top of a hill, is one of the most memorable towns in all of Italy. The town stands illusion-like to travellers wishing to dive into the Middle Ages and its beauty is such that Monteriggioni has played the leading role in films as well as in an episode of the popular videogame Assassin’s Creed. It dates way back, perhaps even settled in the 8th century BCE, as evidenced by the settlement unearthed near Campassini and the vast Etruscan necropolis Casone. The town’s main sights worth seeing are the castle and nearby Abbadia Isola, but amid the breath-taking countryside the entire Monteriggioni area teems with churches, villas and tiny villages. It’s a pleasure to travel these rolling hills on foot, by bike or on horseback. With hillsides brimming with vineyards and olive groves, Monteriggioni beats out numerous natural paths. The Republic of Siena erected the castle between 1214 and 1219, creating a defensive outpost against Florence. For centuries, the settlement fulfilled its purpose, squelching a long line of sieges and attacks. The town’s military function diminished however in the 16th century when the entire state of Siena became annexed to Florence. Monteriggioni still maintains most of its 13th-century structures, a truly unique place, even amid the many medieval towns of Tuscany. A 570-meter-long wall wraps its way around the hilltop, dotted with 14 impressive towers. The village within the walls revolves around a central piazza, home to the church of Santa Maria Assunta. While this building best preserves the town’s age-old traits, copious features, notably narrow streets, have survived in these walls for centuries.”

“One of the most popular Restaurant in the city, very typical Tuscan cuisine in an elegant setting, but not too much, with a choice of Tuscan red Wines but also white Wines, Prosecco and Champagne, Italian and foreign, of very high level. It was the restaurant chosen by former President Barack Obama for his visit to Siena.”
