Surrounded by the undulating landscape of the Crete Senese and Valdorcia, this itinerary aims to explore one of the best-known towns in the world for its famous wine, together a marvelous Tuscan town: Montalcino and its Brunello, and Pienza.
Morning departure by mini-bus straight from your place of stay, travelling over the magnificent countryside of the Crete Senesi to the village of Montalcino (before lunch), noted for its beauty and its famous “Brunello” wine.
After lunch we continue to the Abbey of Sant’Antimo , founded, legend has it, by Charlemagne (sec.VIII). This is a magical place, full of mediaeval atmosphere. If we are lucky we will be able to listen to the monks of the Abbey singing their celebrated Gregorian Chants.
In the afternoon nice stop to visit the wonderful town of Pienza, noted for its famous pecorino (sheep’s milk) cheese.
