You can reach it by car or by foot : is approximately 10-15 minutes walking from the apartment. If you are going by foot is better know that there is a

They have also a shop in the center of Pienza but I suggest you to stop at the workshop for the larger choise of products and lower prices but especially for the possibility to have a look at the "bottega" (laboratory) where the Biagiotti family are still working with hammer, anvil and especially fire, the same fire of Vulcan forge!
