A labyrinth of paths through the Val d’Orcia, a land that is not made to be crossed hurry. Paths and routes of all kinds invite the visitor to move slowly, savoring what he sees, to make a stop in front of houses, gullies, cypresses enjoying landscapes, monuments and all the details of a unique landscape.
You travel by bicycle, on foot or horseback, with a group of friends, alone or with your love, the ancient streets of Val d’Orcia offer countless routes. Not necessarily have to be experienced walkers or cyclist: even if you are in Val d’Orcia by car can park for a few hours and set off in the picturesque trails of southern Tuscany. I recommend, however, bring a backpack, a pair of comfortable shoes, hat for protection from the sun or wind jacket in case of rain.
Here are some suggestions:
– For WINE LOVERS can rise to Montalcino through the vineyards of the renowned Brunello
-for WHO PREFER BREATHTAKING VIEWS should follow the ridge between Radicofani and Contignano in front of the Monte Amiata
– For NATURE LOVERS unmissable the path of “Gole dell’Orcia” from Bagno Vignoni to Ripa d’Orcia . In the Middle Ages belonged to the noble families of the Piccolomini and Salimbeni.
