  • Departed from the crete senesi and through the val d orcia towards monte amiata, clearness and a summary of the most beautiful Tuscan landscapes. Just do it and take the time ...

  • Great place, perhaps the best option is to admire the nature and otkrytochnymi views of Tuscany, the sight of artists of the Renaissance. Villas with Cypress alleys, bales of straw in the fields, coned hills, vineyards, and very cozy medieval towns. By car: the next lap recommend SP146-necessarily (!), SP40, SR2. To stay at Villa and tourism ideally or in one of the towns on SP146. Very good combined with visits to wineries and creameries. Of the towns more liked Montepulciano and Pienza-each will not prevent allocate at least half a day. Unforgettable impressions!

  • My dream was to be in this scenario. That makes you feel in the films of Tuscany! Wonderful place! If you have time do an immersion and stay in one of the houses in the region. In Pienza there is a wonderful view to the Valley of Valdorcia.
