Start off your visit on the 28th (Sat): do a tasting at Podere Il Cocco, look for all kinds of wild species at Crete Senesi, look for gifts at La Taverna del Pecorino, then contemplate the long history of Palazzo Piccolomini, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral. Here are some ideas for day two: learn about winemaking at Azienda Agricola Ercolani, then admire the masterpieces at Museo Civico Archeologico delle Acque, then explore the activities along Terme di San Filippo, and finally examine the collection at Parco Museo Minerario.
