Some nice places that we invite you to discover:
San Gimignano and Volterra
About 60 Km away, “Monteriggioni wears a crown of towers”, as Dante Alighieri writes in his “Divina Commedia”. And this little castle which stands on the top of a hill is still just as lovely. Together with San Gimignano and Volterra it’s a place you shouldn’t miss visiting!
Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore
About 40 Km away, past Crete Senesi you will find the wonderful Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore surrounded by age-old woods, where you can listen to the ancient Gregorian songs of Benedictine Monks.
Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza
About 60 Km away lies Montalcino - land of wine and honey. Together with Montepulciano (one of the most important viticultural places in the world) rising above the Valdichiana and with splendid views, and Pienza, with its history and local products, you have an itinerary which you shouldn’t miss out on!
Abbey of S.Antimo
About 65 Km, the charming and ancient Abbey of S.Antimo, built in in 781 by Carlo Magno and still managed these days by the famous Canonici Bianchi (or White Apostoles) as is evidenced by their clothing. A true Paradise where nature and architecture combine!
About 65 Km deep in the land Val D’Orcia, hides the beautiful Bagno Vignoni, known from Etruscan times, the ancient inhabitants of this area. In the middle of the village you will find "Piazza delle sorgenti", a rectangular basin, dating back to 1500, which contains a hot and steamy thermal subterranean water spring of volcanic origins.
