Medieval castles, rolling hills, ancient villages, beautiful villas, isolated farmhouses, cypresses, fabulous vineyards and olive groves, wheat fields with the colour of gold are just some of the elements that make up the fantastic and harmonious landscapes of the Val d’Orcia!
There are very few other places that impress tourists so deeply. It’s a land with an almost surreal and suspended atmosphere.
The beautiful landscapes of the Val d’Orcia, which inspired many Renaissance painters, are dotted with many small villages, castles, abbeys, hamlets, each one with its own amazing story.
Time flows slowly here. You can admire and discover towns such as Pienza and Montepulciano.
The whole area is incredibly rich in high-quality local products such as the “pecorino” cheese of Pienza, the genuine olive oil, delicious wine, resulting from a long and ancient tradition, saffron, mushrooms, truffles, game and many other specialties.
It is the ideal place for a relaxing tour, away from the crowds and noise! The most beautiful photos of Tuscany come from this paradise!
