Museum of Lucignano

Reviewed By kingduncan81 - Pudsey, United Kingdom

The town of Lucignano is very pleasant, easy enough to find parking, and a very picturesque mountain top town, with several restaurants.
The museum itself was very small, so €5 entrance seemed a bit much.
The main attraction in the four rooms being the "tree of life", a six foot gold statue which took 120 years to create.

Fattoria Santa Vittoria

Reviewed By Douglas W - Aurora, Colorado

This is one of those places that are so good you hate to tell anyone for fear everybody else will flock there! But the place is so charming that it deserves a fantastic review. As an Ariturismo, you will stay in the building right in the middle of rows and rows of grape vines. The building is where, historically, the farm workers lived. The first story wing has been made into two, one bedroom suites. Each has a living/dining room with a sitting area with a couch, and a small, but fully functioning kitchen area, and a dining table. The kitchen is furnished with a two burner gas stove, a refrigerator with a small freezer compartment, and a sink. There are sets of dishes, glassware, and cutlery. One could not hope for a better set up for self catering, or, you can pay a little extra fee per resident and a local woman will deliver breakfast at the time you desire. There is also a separate bedroom, with a Queen size bed, wardrobe, and an on-suite bathroom. Largest bathroom we encountered in Italy with a full size walk in shower! While the suites have been modernized, the Owners have used antique furniture to give the real feeling of a 19th century farmhouse. Just outside is a small table and chairs and a charcoal grill. There is a beautiful open area with overhanging trees for shade, lawn chairs, a large, lovely swimming pool, and a gorgeous fairytale like view over the Tuscan countryside. Extremely quiet and peaceful. Very centrally located to all the wonderful Medieval Hilltowns via very good secondary roads. Very close to Cortona, Lucignano, and Arrezzo. But the best part of our stay was talking with and getting help and suggestions from the owners Marta and Mauro. Among many other things, Marta runs the Agriturismo, and her husband Mauro runs the farm and winery. We booked a private tour of the winery with Mauro and beside seeing the very historical side of the winery with roots back to the Etruscans, we learned tons about the history of wine making in Tuscany, new uses for historic grape varieties, and the production of Vin Santo. Loved it! And the best for last. Both Marta and Mauro are accomplished and passionate cooks! We booked a private dinner for just us ( in the summer they do outside family style dinners under a grape arbor!). Mauro did both the cooking and serving. Each course was paired with a specific wine from their winery. First course was a fantastic Antpasto plate with four kinds of Bruschetta, Herb sautéed egg plant, and prosciutto. Second course (primi) was a locally popular pasta called "Picci" which is a sort of fat spaghetti, which Mauro hand rolled using wheat grown on the farm. Served with a Bolognaise sauce. The third course was a kind of meat and cheese "roll up" served in a bed of lettuce. Mauro called them something like "eggs in the nest". They were OMG good! Lastly he served us a home made sorbet. Folks, this was not only the best meal we had during our three weeks in Italy, but we both agreed that it might have been the best meal we have ever had! This place is very special. It is not the Ritz, or a luxury resort, it is truly a working farm with all the real experience and warmth that that entails. We would go back for a longer stay any time we can.

Rocca di Marciano

Reviewed By Dama955 - Province of Reggio Calabria, Italy

Il Castello di Marciano è posto nel cuore della Val di Chiana, la particolare conformazione rettangolo-trapezoidale, qualifica Marciano come un'architettura militare a differenza degli altri paesi limitrofi che avevano funzione abitativa.
Il Castello ha conservato i caratteri dell'insediamento medioevale: il perimetro murario, ad impianto geometrico rettangolare, è oggi inglobato nelle abitazioni che vi si sono addossate e racchiude il nucleo più antico dell'abitato cui si accede tramite una porta sovrastata da una torre con orologio recentemente restaurata.
Il piccolo agglomerato urbano è dominato dalla Torre e dalla Rocca insieme alla Chiesa parrocchiale e al Campanile.

Believe me, having 2 young daughters I've tried a LOT of ice-cream but not as nice as Andrea's at Bar l'Angolo. Freshly made, smooth, creamy and so delicious. Great service with a good range of aperitivi, Great place to spend the summer nights sitting outside the bar in the main square watching the world go slowly by. Fantastic place.

So your luggage was lost and you are starting a two week vacation in Italy in the clothes you wore on the airplane. We were staying in Montepulciano and faced with the hurdle of where to buy clothes, especially for an American male. You just don't outfit a male with boutique shops (mainly for women) in Montepulciano. Fortunately, we learned about the Valdichiana Outlet Village and stopped on our way to Assisi. This is an Italian version of any outlet mall found in the States with a mix of European and US brands. We were able to find what we needed and learned a bit about how nations tailor brand name clothing to their own style. (no boxer shorts for Italian guys). Thanks, Valdicihiana.---An alternative scenario for the youthful and trim tourist could be that you pack lightly and buy European style clothes here at great prices.
