Is there a particular leather shop in Piensa that you would recommend?
Is it possible to travel by bus, or by train between these two places? How long would this journey be?
I'll be traveling in November and would like to go from Siena to Pienza. Leaving Pienza, I would like to continue on to Arezzo. I will not be driving and there is no train for this route. I am having trouble understanding how the buses work in this region. Could someone please assist? Many thanks!
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.
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!
We are planning a hike and want to leave our car in Pienza and get a Taxi to our start point at the Abbey of Monte Oliveto. Does any one have a taxi Contact in Pienza, has anyone done this, what is the likely cost, can we park the car for a few days in Pienza??
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.
