The Tuscany region
A land of Etruscan artifacts, medieval towns, renaissance cities, wonderful food and famous wines.
DAY TRIP to SIENA – (100km, 1.5 hour by car, trains from Chiusi every 1.25hour). One of the most beautiful Italian medieval towns, with a breathtaking shell shaped square, Piazza del Campo and a gothic Palazzo Pubblico.
DAY TRIP to MON TEPULCIANO and PIENZA, – Start the tour from the marvellous Renaissence city of Montepulciano (40 km from San Casciano) and taste the vino Nobile. From Montepulciano the tour continues to Pienza, a town restored in 1460 by Pope Pius II . On the way back you can stop in Monticchiello and visit La Foce (visit has to be booked in advance), a beautiful estate in the middle of an enchanting landscape.
DAY TRIP to MONTALCINO and SANT’ANTIMO– (55 Km from San Casciano along the Cassia road) A well worthwhile trip to taste Brunello wine in Montalcino! Then, don’t miss the charming Abbey of Sant’Antimo, which was founded in the 8th century by Charles the Great. On the way back you can stop in Bagno Vignoni, a village known for its warm spring since the Etruscan time. In the main square there is a 14th century thermal pool.
HALF DAY TRIP to CHIUSI – (25km, ½ hour by car). If you are in love with the Etruscans, Chiusi has a rich museum, and around the lake you can see evidence of an Etruscan burial site. Guided tours with expert local guides can be booked.

DAY TRIP to TODI and ORVIETO – (100km, 1.5 hour by car to Todi, 40 km to go back home from Orvieto). I call Todi the Montepulciano of Umbria. A real jewel, with splendid palaces and a beautiful square where there is a restaurant renouned for the past 30 years. From Todi to Orvieto you will drive past a beautiful lake and its natural reserve, formed by the Tevere river. Orvieto is well known and a visit to the well of San Patrizio, to the Duomo, and to the underground caves, is recommended.

The owners of the Castle of Montegiove, (a young half Italian and half Danish gentlemen and his adorable Danish wife), are very hospitable and you can have lunch in their beautiful Castle.

It is very relaxing tour and offers the possibility of visiting other interesting places such as the Ruspoli castle. From Bolsena there are boat trips to Bizentina island where there is a beautiful garden, Giardino della Cannara, and the marvellous Odescalchi castle.

HALF DAY TRIP to BOMARZO MONSTER PARK – (80km, 1 ½ hour by car). An incredible garden built in the 16th century by an eccentric nobleman who filled the estate with bizarre, surreal statues as memorials to his wife.

"Farm estate living in Tuscany is pretty special, truly a unforgettable place to stay with fantastic owners"
Great place to stay to truly get away and enjoy the relaxing Tuscany life. The chef at home was fantastic and the local shopping 5-10 minutes away allowed us to cook like chefs with the local cuisine. Not over the top fancy but very classic italian and very comfortable home. The view from the pool, drinking aperol spritz and negroni's was priceless- the kids liked it too!
The surrounding country side is authentic Tuscany as it gets. We'll be back...
