  • From Chiusi in Siena, via Montepulciano, Pienza, San Quirico d'Orcia, Buonconvento, you come across a unique landscape, with a glance. Every village do you admire for order and cleanliness and each corner pays surprise.

  • The val d'Orcia, which takes its name from the River Orcia, offers a spectacular landscape with its rolling hills, different depending on the area. In and around Pienza wheat cereals cultivated are more barren because etc., but lovely. Near Montalcino are richer in trees. Beautiful scenery especially in spring with wonderful colors. Beautiful fields of sunflowers, cypress trees in small groups around the stone farmhouses, or to form long avenues. In summer the setting sun stains pink hills and knolls. Full of beautiful medieval villages, castles, history, art and culture, is undoubtedly a heritage, visit thoroughly.

  • View many times, in different year, remains one of my favorite destinations in Tuscany. Landscaping to get around and get lost. There are beautiful towns such as Pienza and many others. In a word: deserves.
