      I'm not getting email responses from bike rental companies doing business in the Arezzo area. I'd like to make direct contact with a bike shop in Arezzo. Is anyone aware of a shop that rents bicycles in Arezzo? I want to rent bikes for a 5 day September 2014 tour ending up in Siena.

      Day trip to Siena and other Tuscan town(s) using Public Transport from Florence

      Tuscany Apr 16, 2014 at 10:55 AM

      Hi friends

      I will be staying in Florence for 4 nights in the month of May. I plan to sightsee Florence on 2 days and take a day trip to Lucca and Pisa on the 3rd day. On my 4th day I wish to visit Siena and some picturesque countryside which is often associated with Tuscany. Also in the afternoon I would like to do some Wine Tasting at a decent vineyard. I have heard Chianti is the place for wine and is between Florence and Siena. However, I would need to do this using Public transport. Please let me know if this can and should be done using Public transport or should I consider spending more to rent a car with a guide or a guided tour. I do not have any knowledge of any Tuscan town which could be combined with Siena for the above, so I am open to all suggestions.

      Thank you

    • What to take to Tuscany for a 2 week trip on the last 2 weeks in April

      Tuscany Apr 3, 2014 at 6:06 PM

      I will be traveling to visit my daughter in Tuscany the last 2 weeks in April. I will be staying with her but will be going to Cinque Terre for 2 days, Pitigliano for 2 days and some other day trips. I will be doing a lot of walking and some hiking on the trip. I may eat out in some local trattorie but probably not in any fancy ristorante I have been in Tuscany on a few other trips so I will probably not be spending much time in churches .. I like to travel light so I will only be taking a carry on and will probably do my laundry half way through the trip. Any suggestions for what clothes I should take with me?

    • Pinger in Italy

      Siena Apr 12, 2014 at 10:00 PM

      Does anyone know for sure whether the Pinger phone/texting app is supported in Italy? We live in the US and will soon be in Italy (Rome and Siena) for three weeks. I would like to avoid international charges on my iphone. But I can't seem to find a website that tells me if Italy has Pinger. The app is free and it looks like you can call and text to the US from many countries free of charge with WiFi. But I can't find a way to know if Italy is one of those countries. Thanks for any help you can give!

      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.
