From Torrenieri, take the old Cassia turning toward the medieval castle of Cosona. Do a side trip northwest to Lucignano d’Asso, a magical hamlet with a bar where you can eat, drink and be merry. Double back to the Cosona road and head to one of my favorites, the fourteenth-century monastery of Sant’Anna in Camprena. The location is superb, the buildings and gardens charming, and the frescoes by Sodoma worth seeing. Much of The English Patient was filmed here before the cloisters and grounds were restored.
