One of Tuscany’s most beautiful valleys, your dream come true.
Traversed by the river from which it takes its name, Val d’Orcia is a large valley in the province of Siena, to the north-east of Monte Amiata and close to the Tuscan border with Lazio. Famous for its gently undulating landscapes, dotted with medieval hill towns, such as Pienza, Montalcino, Montichiello, San Quirico d’Orcia, Castiglione d’Orcia, Bagno Vignoni and Radicofani, the Orcia Valley is one of Tuscany’s most loved tourist destinations.
The valley prospered as a consequence of its being traversed by the Via Francigena, the thoroughfare which linked Rome with Northern Europe and which served as pilgrim route between Canterbury and the capital of the Christian faith.
An UNESCO world heritage site since July 2nd 2004, the entire valley is now a park, protected so as to conserve landscapes immortalized by many a Renaissance artist.
