The Val d’Orcia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site: as we read “it is an exceptional example of the redesigning of the landscape in the Renaissance… a combination of art and landscape, the expression of wonderful natural features but also the result and testimony of the people who live there….” When you hear about the tuscan countryside, you are very likely to envisioning a picture of this area: unlimited views on smooth hills, cypress zig zag roads, small hamlets and chapels surrounded by fields…
Val d’Orcia is dotted by beautiful towns: among the many we will be visiting Montalcino and Pienza.
Montalcino is a real treat for connoisseurs and wine lovers. Montalcino rhymes with Brunello, one of the kings of Tuscan reds. You’ll get the chance to taste it widely in two small off the beaten track wineries. From Montalcino the tour will head to Pienza – a town that was built on the wishes of Pope Pius II in the 16th century and that is considered the ideal city of the Renaissance – where we recommend you to have lunch at one of our favorite family run places: you might like to linger in a pecorino cheese and olive oil tasting as well!
