Take a tour of the Tuscan countryside with me.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa, a camapnile or free-standing belltower world famous for it’s unintended tilt. Located in the Cathedral Square known as the “Piazza del Duomo” or even Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) alongside the Cathedral and Baptistery which today belongs to the Catholic Church. Construction began in the 12th century.
A medieval town located on a hillside in the Tuscan countryside. Famous for their wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Pici thick hand rolled pasta, Cinta Senese pork and Pecorino cheese.
From the edges of the town perched on a hill, you have a spectacular view of the tuscan landscape that stretches seemingly endlessly away in all directions.
Make sure to stop by the Brewery L’Olmaia to sample and purchase beer brewed on site.
Where to Eat
Tour the wine cellars and taste the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano at The Contucci Cantine.
Pienza really took my breath away. The copper hues that color the landscape as the apricot colored sun, falls behind the tuscan hills is something everyone should experience. The olive groves and farmland stretch far away towards the horizon.
