The Wine tour to Montalcino was part of a larger tour that continued to Pienza and Montepulciano. However, the old man at the winery Mario was rather pushy and talked toooo much. His wine wasn`t cheap, although of good quality, but at the end of the tour he was frantic and running from group to group pushing and shoving wondering... More

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

The first time I crossed the Val D'Orcia I was astonished by the beauty of the landscapes, they seem painted so much is their fascination. It gives you a sense of peace and has the suggestive power of bringing people back in time. This landscape stimulates the wish for authenticity and natural beauty with the colors and shapes of the...

No words can describe Val d' Orcia, no pictures can depict its enormous, captivating beauty. Simply the most enchanting, breathtakingly beautiful landscape my eyes have ever seen. So lucky to have seen it, so eager to go back there again and again!

It's really really beautiful. A breathtaking landscape, an unforgettable road trip. No wonder it is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Our family spent a glorious week at the agritourismo resort, Il Poggio, in S. Casciano dei Bagni and with the flexibility that a rental car provided, we were able to explore the marvelous countryside of the Val d'Orcia. Undulating hills with Renaissance towns mounted on rocky heights, panoramic vistas punctuated with idyllic farmhouses, sinuous country roads lined by towering Italian... More
