Men with headbands against sweat, armed with pitchforks to fry the meat. A mighty spectacle. Large steaks from local cows are cooked here and served along with a bottle of wine, a bottle of water, a tray of tomato salad and a peach. 800 grams 0f 1200 grams, you name it.
Antiques market in Cortona
Every 4th Sunday of the month there is a fun, small antique market in Piazza Signorelli in Cortona. Nice to spend some time scurrying around among all the stalls.
Hike to Cortona
Every Monday morning we walk to Cortona. We leave on time to get ahead of the heat, around 8 am. The first part goes uphill and is quite steep, so that's good! The route is partly on ancient Roman paths. 200 years old, and still intact. Beautiful views, varied landscape, and doable for anyone who can walk for an hour; 3 kilometers but climbing and descending. In Cortona we take a typical Italian breakfast together; a nice cappucino with sweet bread. This breakfast is included in the price of the walk (any other drinks and sandwiches available at an additional cost). Enthusiasts can stay and explore Cortona on their own after breakfast. After breakfast we walk back together or alone, both possible. This activity takes place with sufficient participation.
Don't feel like cooking? Then join us for a nice dinner.Cozy dining together, drinking fine wines, at a long table.... Come un film! Every Tuesday evening we fire up the big pizza oven and bake all kinds of pizzas. These we cut to pieces and put on the table, come, grab and taste! As a starter we serve various anti-pasti and we finish with home-made tiramisu. A three course pizza evening, Italian food at its best.
Highly recommended! On a scooter right through the beautiful Tuscan countryside. "It's like driving straight through a painting.... "First you go through a beautiful part of Tuscany on your way to the scooter rental company in Pienza. After a very nice drive of an hour you will arrive there. Here you will get a map of the area and nice tips, your scooter tour along all kinds of picturesque Tuscan towns can begin. Nice touring, stopping along the way at the most beautiful places and of course do not forget to have lunch ... In addition to scooters, this company also rents out old fiat 500 cars and e-bikes. The scooters are Vespa 125cc. They require a car license and a credit card. A motorcycle license is not required. For many a highlight of the vacation. Especially in the summer, book on time! We are happy to do that for you, we have attractive arrangements with the rental company.
Arezzo antique market
The largest antique market in the region is in the center of Arezzo. Always on the first Sunday of the month and the Saturday before. The whole old center of Arezzo turns into a lively antique market. There is something for everyone: antiques, bric-a-brac, art and entertainment; a delicious espreso in a bar on the square, an elaborate lunch after strolling through the antique market, it is all possible and fun! Only a good half hour away.
A large regional goods market held every Thursday morning. From fruit to clothing to live chickens. You can't imagine if it's for sale here. This is where the Italians from the area meet to catch up. Very nice to see and hear. Nearby, just ten minutes away.
