Asciano arty visit

  • Asciano arty visit

    Asciano is an underrated town and a slow burn, full of the minor cultural gems that make Tuscany so special. Consider calling into Asciano while exploring the Crete Senesi route (see above). This seemingly unremarkable town reveals a cluster of so-called minor but magical museums, of which the best is the Museo d’Arte Sacra, a treasury of Sienese art. Lunch in a local inn and be sure to try the pungent local cheese, pecorino delle crete senesi. Best of all, visit Asciano on the Nature Train (see above). The train is timed to coincide with a lively market selling local honey and pecorino cheese from the Crete area and Pienza, or chestnuts from Monte Amiata.
