One of the highlights of our honeymoon in Italy. Traveled throughout the region, staying for six days at an inn near Pienza, between the towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino. Extraordinary vistas, charming country roads and picturesque sights. Wine from local vineyards is some of the best on the planet. Don't leave Italy without a sample of vino bianco/rosso and olio...

The area is just wonderful to visit, discover and enjoy :-) "Val d'Orcia", "Monteriggioni", "Siena",... All these places and those in between are just beautiful.

We spent 2 weeks this summer in Tuscany, with some of our days spent in Montepulciano, and Bagno Vignoni, some of the areas of the Val d'Orcia. The views are incredible...very tranquil and relaxing. So glad this area has been honored as a World Heritage Site.

The sunset of the val d'orcia is amazing. We always say photo is about the beauty of the light. The light will make the object appears in different colours. The light of the sunset changes the appearance of val d orcia in every seconf.

val d'orcia has beautiful and well singnaled walking trails that are definetly worth doing. especially with the guides of "Il Bivacco "ilbivacco-toscana.it for them and arrange with a week notice. They are very knowledgeable and know the secret trails off the beaten track . Or you can do a VEspa tour with the guys of agriturismo Passalacqua agriturismopassalacqua.it

Don't miss the opportunity when in Florence or Rome to rent a car and drive to Tuscany - to Val d'Orcha. It is the best place to visit - best landscape ever with vineyards, olive groves and green fields covered with poppies and wheat. Just be careful when stop at towns and villages that some of them have signs of... More

My wife and I wanted to hike and walk in Tuscany as an add on to our trip. We had considered something like Back Roads but felt that paying such a premium for someone else to plan a trip in Tuscany was ridiculous. Back Roads is fine for more exotic and more difficult to plan trips. So I "googled" and... More
