The classic views of Tuscany, its vineyards & olive groves can all be found here with sunflower filled fields scattered with poppies. (See the pictures)
Monasteries are a major attraction of the area Sant, Antimo & Monte Oliveto Maggiore are two of Tuscany's most beautiful .The thermal springs & spas with warm open air bathing pools are equally spectacular.
