Pienza

Pienza is an exquisite Renaissance doll’s house, almost too perfect for its own good. Pienza’s popularity has been boosted by its Unesco recognition and by its attraction as a film set. More heretically, visitors flock to the town almost as much for its superb array of Pecorino cheeses as for its perfect Renaissance architecture. The future Pope Pius II was born here in 1405. He commissioned Bernardo Rossellino to rebuild the village of his birth as a model Renaissance city. The result is what locals call a città d’autore, a city inspired by one vision.  After strolling around Pienza’s city walls for splendid views of Monte Amiata and Val d’Orcia, few can resist retreating to a quaint inn for lunch. Expect Pecorino sheep’s milk cheeses to be on the menu. The scenery around Pienza is equally lovely, with the town framed by chestnuts and cypresses, olive groves, poppies and sunflower fields.

Private Tour: Italian Breakfast and Accademia Gallery Guided Visit

The Accademia Gallery is Florence’s most visited museum right after the Uffizi Gallery. It's the house of Michelangelo’s David and his Prisoners and many works from the 16th-18th century. It adjoins the Accademia di Belle Arti or academy of fine arts of Florence, but despite the name has no other connection with it. Long lines can also form at the Accademia so I highly recommend buying this tour ahead of time. For sure you will need some energy before visit it, so you will have breakfast with your guide in a very historical coffee-shop. You will also have the opportunity to learn something more about our culture and traditions.
