    • Good hotel in Siena

      Siena Aug 6, 2015 at 2:05 PM

      We are looking for recommendations for a good hotel in the center (?) of Siena for a few nights in mid-September. I have read that cars are not permitted in the center, so is one better off to stay outside the city walls, where parking will be easier? If so, how does one get into the city and back to a hotel?

    • Des this Itinerary look OK? Tuscany + CT

      Tuscany Aug 28, 2015 at 2:33 AM

      I'm travelling with my two kids, 19 and 21, in September and would love some feedback on the following itinerary. Trying to keep costs low. We like views, walking, biking, wine/olive oil/cheese stops, nature sites with water, beaches.
      Mon 21: late night arrival Florence
      Tues 22: florence
      Wed 23: florence
      Thur 24: EITHER bike tour around Tuscany that leaves from Florence with a company, wine tasting and some other nice activities but 80 euros each (!) OR go back to the Florence airport by bus (20 Euros each?) and rent a car for two days. First day: Siena, Montelcino, Pienza, Montepulciano and maybe others. Where to stay if we rent a car? I prefer not to drive back into Florence but want to get to Pisa + LaSpezia the next day.
      If we take the bike tour we would go back to Florence for the night.
      Fri 25: take/continue with car to Lucca (bike ride on walls), Pisa (photo op and stroll), possibly a beach stop (?) and return car in LaSpezia. Stay in area of LaSpezia, possibly Lerici or take the ferry or train to Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre in the evening.
      Sat 26: hike in Cinque Terre
      Sun 27: more Cinque Terre, maybe switch to Monterossa hotel for beach
      Mon 28: more Cinque Terre, train to Genoa early evening and sleep near airport in Genoa
      Tues 29: 8am flight home from Genoa
      Any comments would be highly appreciated!! Thanks.

      Etruscan Cave

      Montepulciano Aug 20, 2015 at 6:11 PM

      I was in Montepulciano this summer. It happened that I went into one of many wine tasting places. And inside was an Etruscan cave. I wish I can remember the name of the wine tasting place. It was at the entrance of the main Puerta. Can anybody tell me if you know the name?
      Greatly appreciate it.

      Wineries in Tuscany

      Tuscany Aug 20, 2015 at 7:32 AM

      Hello all :-)

      my sister is looking for wineries in Tuscany as a surprise for her hubby. Sadly I could not yet convince her to consider the wineries in Umbria or Marche, but .. one day hopefully.

      She looks for wineries which offer more wine tasting and less showing the wine making techniques. They like Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and otherwise Bardolino from Lake Garda.

      She considers staying near San Gimignano. But they love to drive, so a good winery not so close by isn't a problem.

      Thanks in advance!!

      I love many of the shops in Pienza, and am trying to remember the name of one that sells decorative iron products of all sorts. It is on the main street in the pedestrian area. If anyone knows, please let me know.

      All About Pienza (and a little bit about Siena!)

      by SandiM Online Now Nov 14, 2009 at 10:06 PM

      Are you familiar with Pienza and its surroundings? Here's what I need to know. My mother and I have a tight schedule for Tuscany in April 2010--we have 2 nights in Siena and after that, we want to leave by bus early on a Sunday morning to head to Pienza. Is it true there is realy only 1 (fairly direct) bus service (route 112/A) from Siena to Pienza and it leaves at 10:50am? Or are there any more buses leaving earlier on that Sunday morning? Once in Pienza, we only have 1 night there. So, in the afternoon after we check-in to our hotel, we want to SOMEHOW get down to La Foce (via Monticchiello) to snap some photos of the famous twisty road with the cypress trees, then go back to Pienza. The next morning (Monday), we'll take a bus to Chiusi to train it down to Rome (this part I think I got it right, we have to go to Montepuliciano by bus first, then transfer to a bus for Chiusi). So, how far is Pienza to La Foce? Is it walkable? (probably not). Are there places to rent bikes or motorscooters or a car in Pienza? Any online links? Last note: if the bus schedules are really that hard to navigate for Sunday's/Monday's, I will consider renting a car in Siena as long as I am able to return it in Chiusi. Any suggestions for rental companies? Mille gracie!

    • Trying to find the name and contact info of an art gallery store

      by filmmakerdream Online Now Aug 7, 2007 at 5:41 AM

      I was just in Pienza a few weeks ago and I brought a breautiful painted box from a small art gallery owned by a man. This gallery was entirely filled with just this man's paintings of the Tuscany region. He gave me his card with the contact info, but I lost it. I am wondering if anybody who frequently visits Pienza or lives there can maybe help me locate this place and find the contact info. I remember that it was located next to a souvenir shop and before the large square area with a cathedral.
