Pienza and Vicinity: Cooking Classes, Dining
My husband and I are going to Italy for the first time in a few weeks and have an ambitious itinerary. We're doing three nights in Pienza at an agriturismo and I am curious about eating around there, and if you CH folks have any cooking class or must-do recommendations in the region.
La Bandita recently opened a restaurant in Pienza that is supposed to be fantastic.
There is also Dopolavoro, near La Foce, which I like a lot.
