What shall I see

Explore one of the most stunning landscapes in the world. Enter the heart of real Tuscany with its medieval villages of incomparable charm. Ancient farming traditions that produce wine, cheese, cold cuts and excellent meat are still used here lending to their world-wide reputation. The beauty of the landscape shows harmoniously how nature and man have lived together for centuries in an unbeatable balance. Travel through hilly stretches of old vineyards and olive groves, which characterize the splendid Chianti territory. Reach Greve where you will enjoy the charm of its historic square flanked by open galleries. Wander around the characteristic shops selling local handicrafts and traditional Chianti products. Continue to Castellina, a characteristic ancient hamlet perched on a hill, where we will visit an evocative and historic cellar. Just outside the village, in one of the most famous vineyards of the area, you will be guided through a tasting of different Chianti area wines, extra virgin olive oil on Tuscan bread, vin santo with locally produced "cantuccini" and lavender honey. Proceeding along a panoramic road, admire the picturesque village of Monteriggioni, a small medieval jewel still surrounded by its ancient walls. Further on is the unmistakable clay landscape of Crete Senesi, a hilly, desert territory that rouses unforgettable feelings. We will continue until reaching an area that contrasts completely the Crete territory. Immerse yourself in the green Val dOrcia, a UNESCO heritage site, whose harmonious landscape of hills is dotted with cypress, castles, churches, ancient villages of Etruscan origin and farms that accompany the route of the famous "Via Francigena." Here, at a historic farm, you will be served a guided lunch-tasting of the renowned Rosso di Montalcino, Brunello and Supertuscan wines as well as a large selection of local products from the territory. For dessert enjoy a delicious homemade fruit pie. All this is followed by a visit to the cellars and some leisure time to enjoy the nature. Our next stop will be at the medieval village of Montalcino whose surrounding walls and towers make this imposing fourteenth century fortress the perfect place for beautiful views of Val d´Orcia. Moltalcino has also narrow streets with dozens of wineries and artisans´ shops selling local products. Our final stop will be only a short panoramic journey away to Montepulciano, a city enclosed by fortified walls perched on a hill 1,968 feet above sea level between Val d´Orcia and Val di Chiana. The town is renowned for its Noble wine obtained from the surrounding vineyards. Take a walk along the steep streets. Pass elegant squares as you admire splendid Renaissance buildings and churches. Visit one of the many wine-cellars of the old town to taste delicious wine.
