Just 30 km from the hotel, another wonderful example of the Tuscan landscape
South of Siena, a 40-minute drive from Hotel Ai Tufi, along the old Via Cassia stands another wonderful example of the Tuscan landscape: the Val D'Orcia. The absolute protagonist here is the still unspoiled nature, with always intense and brilliant colors that change with the seasons. The most iconic photos of Tuscany come from this very paradise!
Rolling hills with wheat, vineyards, forests, ancient villages...an immersion in a world stopped in time and characterized by glimpses that, thanks to their beauty, have become UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
This whole area is particularly rich in local products of great quality, from Pienza pecorino cheese to olive oil, wine to saffron, mushrooms, truffles, and game. An itinerary in Val d'Orcia will be a special journey of sweet flavors and wonderful landscapes that you will always carry in your heart.
