Our signature walking trip through southern Tuscany to the best hilltop towns of Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino and Buonconvento. Eat, drink and walk your way through Tuscany's captivating landscape, relaxing in exquisite hotels and wellness spas, while we take care of everything else. Set in the hills south of Siena, experience the Vida Dulca (sweet life) of this area, enjoying lovely walks interspersed with lavish lodging, cultural interests and culinary delights. Taste the sharp and salty flavors of Pecorino cheese with a local artisan, savor 100% Sangiovese Brunello's at a wine tasting in Montalcino and enjoy a traditional “Toscana” dinner at the rustic chic restaurant of your tranquil countryside hotel. Unwind in the healing waters of ancient Etruscan hot spring baths and within the pretty streets and brick archways of overnight hamlets. Stroll along Pienza’s Via Dell’Amore (love way) for picturesque views of the Val d’Orcia, fertile grasslands and iconic cypress tree lined paths.
