*** EXCLUSIVE DATES for this Curated Stay-Experience ***

* 7-Nights Accommodations at the Featured ThirdHome property - Palazzo Prugnoli (property ID #01840)
https://www.thirdhome.com/properties/1840-monte-santa-maria-tiberina-italy-palazzo-prugnoli
Magnificently set on the flanks of a mountain on the Umbrian / Tuscan border between Florence and Siena, stands this meticulously restored, 16th century Tuscan villa formerly owned by the Prince of Milan. This Palazzo, which has undergone a complete, but sympathetic, restoration by local artisans features huge bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and can sleep up to 18 guests. The rooms retain their original character, with every window flooded with light and stunning views over the Umbrian countryside.

* OPTIONAL: THE SARACEN JOUSTING EVENT - Tickets are required for this unique special event
Experience the legendary 135th Saracen Jousting Event - this jousting tournament is between mounted knights in 13th-century armor and the effigy of a Saracen warrior. Hosted in the charming village of Arezzo's main square (approximately 1-1/2-hr drive from Umbria/property location), this tournament has its origins in the early 16 C and commemorates Christian efforts to hold back the tide of Islam in the 14 C. A lively and colourful procession of costumed participants is followed by the main event in which eight costumed knights charge towards a wooden representation of the Saracen, aiming to hit the Saracen's shield with lances. The Saracen is mounted on a swivel so that part of the task of the knight is to avoid being struck back. Each pair of knights represents one of Arezzo's four rival districts and their supporters each occupy a side of the piazza. The winner receives a prestigious and highly coveted golden lance.

Cacio is the original Tuscan word for pecorino and the fuso or spindle is the target of the game. Pienza makes among the best pecorino in all of Italy and a wide range of excellent cheeses are available to be tasted and bought during this fair.
