Cities and other places to visit

The farmhouse is in an area full of towns and villages, full of history and attractions. Siena (the city of the Palio) is only half an hour away and the stunning cities of Florence and Arezzo (here, scenes of the movie "La vita è bella" by Roberto Benigni were filmed) are just an hour away. The renowned medieval village of Pienza, a town commissioned by Pope Pius II (Enea Silvio Piccolomini) is currently a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Not to be missed, because of their cultural relevance, are Montepulciano, Montalcino and Cortona, as well as some abbeys, like those-ones of Sant'Antimo (Montalcino), Monteoliveto Maggiore (Asciano), and the Cistercian Abbey of San Galgano; to this egregious selection, we should add also the monastery of Sant'Anna in Camprena with the frescoes of Sodoma.
If you feel like shopping, pay a visit to "Valdichiana Outlet Village" with about 100 famous shops of both international and Italian brands - all just half an hour away.
