A short drive away…
Siena (12 km) - For those seeking fantastic food and spectacular art Siena makes a great day trip with a plethora of fabulous restaurants and Gothic architecture. Rivalling Florence for Renaissance palazzi and art, Siena’s churches, galleries and museums could keep you busy for weeks.
Asciano (24 km) is perched high on a hilltop with two of the best small museums in Tuscany. The Museo d’Arte Sacra contains an exquisite 15th-century Birth of the Virgin and polychrome wooden Annunciation and the Palazzo Corboli has incredible rooms frescoed with stunning allegorical cycles. There’s also a striking Romanesque church, Sant'Agata, and if you enquire in the Ancient Francini Naldi de Munari Pharmacy, the resident doctor may show you a Roman first century mosaic floor.
