Outstanding tour with Giovanni, he was very proud of his position. Wines were excellent. Olive oil was outstanding. The view from the estate overlooks a 360* view. Worth the drive to visit a beautiful place.

Pienza-Montalcino Day Trip--which to see first? (9 Replies)
I am devoting a day of our itinerary to sample la dolce vita in Pienza and Montalcino, but I am not sure which town to visit first. We're leaving directly from the Hertz office in Florence on via Sansovino del, so I think it will take us 2 hours to get to Montalcino (arrival around 11AM) or 2.5 hours to Pienza (arrival around 11:30AM). We have a 2PM wine tasting at the Altesino Winery, so wherever we go first we will have to leave in time to make our appointments. So I guess my real question...More

Pienza is quite small. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from one end of town to the other (without stopping in shops etc. naturally)

I love the grounds up on the hill and the winery below. This is the place that Chianti wine was invented. If you go look for the WW II bullet holes in walls. Since the family bought the vineyard back from a giant corporation, the wine is excellent.
