Hill Towns of Tuscany

  • Explore the famed hill towns of Southern Tuscany on foot
  • Scenic walks between Renaissance and medieval towns, vineyards, and olive groves
  • Relax and recharge in the thermal baths at Bagno Vignoni
  • Time to reflect and listen to the sound of monastic chants in Sant’ Antimo Abbey
  • Fantastic cheese, pasta, and wine including Brunello di Montalcino and Nobile di Montepulciano
Explore Tuscany’s timeless rolling scenery, walking between Renaissance and medieval hilltop towns, before arriving in iconic Siena. The journey winds through a unique linear, almost geometric landscape of hills, vineyards, and olive trees. Highlights include the historic spa baths at Bagno Vignoni and the Romanesque Sant’ Antimo Abbey. Follow rewarding trails through the lesser-known wine regions and join the Via Francigena pilgrimage path for part of the journey. Take time, slow down and discover the tastes and textures of Tuscany, one of Italy’s most iconic regions.
