The Val d’Orcia and its beautiful landscapes are perhaps the emblem of Tuscany in the minds and hearts of all of us. A landscape so characteristic and pure that it is no coincidence that it has received recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Hills, cypresses, medieval villages, wheat fields as far as the eye can see. And then olive groves and vineyards that produce Brunello and other fine Tuscan wines.
The oldest extinct volcano in Italy in Italy, Monte Amiata rises to the west marking the border of this beautiful valley.
Here are some of the most beautiful villages you must visit: the romantic Pienza, the ideal city for the Renaissance, Radicofani and its fortress, the cypresses of San Quirico d’Orcia. Also Castiglione d’Orcia and Montalcino with its refined Brunello. San Giovanni d’Asso, where you can also taste the white truffle, Bagno Vignoni, famous for its suggestive thermal baths in the town square, and Bagni San Filippo, where the water rises from the heart of the volcano.
Here you can enjoy exciting excursions on foot or by bike, you can take fantastic photos of the most iconic views and fully enjoy the wonder of the Tuscan landscape that surrounds us.
