The Tuscany region
Siena is at just 20 minutes. A classic medieval hill town in Tuscany famous for its large fan-shaped piazza or main square. Piazza del Campo is the heart of the town and is the home to the famous summer horse-race, known as Il Palio. Siena is one of Italy's prettiest medieval towns. Its peak was about 1260-1348 when it was one of Europe's wealthiest cities and many of its buildings and art works originate from that time.
The countryside outside of Siena is beautiful and unusual. You'll come across small villages, medieval hill towns, grape vines, and olive trees. The Crete Senese (Asciano) is the area of clay hills south of Siena, a striking and barren landscape.
North of Siena is the Chianti Classico wine region. If you want to go wine tasting Chianti wineries , ask us.
Monteriggioni is a small and picturesque walled town with 14 towers very near Siena. In less than an hour's drive, you can visit San Gimignano or the wine towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino.
South of Siena is the Crete Senesi, the sometimes barren, clay hills of Siena province which are strangely photogenic.
A"suggestive" place on the Tuscan landscape. Fabulous landscapes to drive through (or better yet, bike or hike though).
The village of Castelmuzio is a suggestive Tuscan hilltop village sitting beside an age-old Etruscan road that linked Chiusi and Siena, two major Etruscan centers thousands of years ago. Walk along Via del Mattonato until you come to Le Mura, a terrace where you can survey the surrounding countryside.
Other interesting towns: Montisi, Talamone, Castiglione, Porto San Stefano, and Buonconvento.
