Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Once you are picked up from your Siena accommodation, you will embark on the road that leads from Siena to Montalcino. This road crosses the heart of the Crete Senesi, a argillaceous territory made up of rolling hills and winding roads, with badlands and white dune-like hillocks forming a "lunar" landscape.

    After a brief stop to admire and take pictures of the suggestive Crete senesi and the small medieval village of Chiusure, you will continue the trip towards the Abbey of Monteoliveto Maggiore. It is one of the most important benedictine monasteries in Tuscany, surrounded by a thick wood and situated on a hill overlooking the landscape of the Crete. Here, you can admire important frescoes, dating back to the XV century. Visit the Herbalist's shop where you can buy the monks' products and the historic cellar of the abbey to taste the wine and olive oil produced at the farm of Monteoliveto.

    In Montalcino, walk past various artisan shops and small cafes where you can admire the monumental buildings up to the 14th-century fortress through a scenic tour of the walls. There, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the hills designed by vineyards and cultivated fields.

    On the way back, you will stop at an organic winery in the countryside of Brunello. Visit the cellar to discover the steps and techniques of processing grapes and taste a selection of Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino wines among the most famous and appreciated worldwide.
