Mensano is one of the most intimate and graceful of Tuscany’s hill towns, the same today it would seem as a century ago. Eighty residents cling to the crown of the hill, sharing narrow cobbled streets, a comfortable restaurant and warm smiles, Mensano is a treasure to behold.
Along the meandering country road that winds its way from the Castello to Mensano, is a restoration of rare and remarkable character, Pietti. The site offers captivating views across a buttery landscape that changes color with the season from emerald green to sun starched wheat. On a distant hill is Radicondoli, a rival to Mensano in all things quaint and impeccably Tuscan.
