Val d'Orcia e Amiata
Agriturismi Farm Holiday Val d'Orcia e Amiata
It is better to admire this land than to describe it, as words themselves are not enough to describe its beauty.
Val d'Orcia is a large valley situated in the province of Siena, in Tuscany, north-east of the Mount Amiata, and not far from the Umbria border. The valley is also an important natural, artistic and cultural park, and from the 2nd of July 2004 it was declared a Unesco World Heritage site. The villages belonging to Val d'Orcia are Castiglion d'Orcia, Montalcino, Pienza, also a Unesco site, Radicofani and San Quirico d'Orcia. Other important sites are Monticchiello , with its famous Teatro Povero, or Poor's Theatre, Bagno Vignoni, and its spectacular Piazza delle Sorgenti, a rectangular pool from the Sixteenth Century containing a warm thermal water source coming straight from a vulcanic spring, Montenero d'Orcia and Montegiovi.
Val d'Orcia is reachable from Siena through the Cassia along the traces left by the pilgrims who walked the Francigena one thousand years ago, to get to Rome. Among the typical features of Val d'Orcia, there is wine of course. Apart from Brunello di Montalcino, produced with Sangiovese grapes only, Val d'Orcia is also the land of origin of a red wine with the name of the valley. These wines are perfect drunk with the typical produce of the local tradition. Pecorino cheese from Pienza is one of the most delicious.
All the towns in the Valley deserve to be visited, just like the countryside that reach the grand Mount Amiata, which the large monolythe of the Tentennano Rook just in front, treasure and symbol of Castiglion d'Orcia.
