“The heart of Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Beautiful rolling hills, farms and crowned by Siena--a spectacular Renaissance city. Winding roads go through tiny towns and by monasteries, wineries and lead to lovely villages, such as Montalcino.

“unmissable landscape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

amazing part of the tuscan hills often gets missed on regular tours of the area which focus on chianti hills and towns. ideal for drive (probably even better by bike) plenty of options for eating and sleeping in the many small towns in the area.
