Take a route through one of Tuscany’s six World Heritage Sites, designated for its influence and depiction in many paintings of the Renaissance era. The area is also renowned for its outstanding local produce, with festivals throughout the calendar celebrating some of Tuscany’s most popular culinary exports (such as truffles and Brunello wine). The Val d’Orcia denotes the valley around the river Orcia, a landscape popular among photographers, with vast, open vistas of rolling hills stretching far into the horizon. As you follow this route through the expansive countryside, you’ll find a scenery punctuated by the clusters of Cypress and vineyards on your way to the region’s beautiful Renaissance towns and villages.
The Val d’Orcia footpath meanders through gentle, rolling hills, the trail occasionally broken by short, soft ascents and descents through dried up ravines. This is a landscape made iconic through renaissance art and modern photography, a trail leading through famous, picturesque medieval towns and the farms and vineyards that gave the area its important gastronomic and cultural status - still very much in effect as you follow the Val d’Orcia through some of Tuscany's most beautiful stretches of countryside.
Small, welcoming family-run hotels comprise the accommodation on this journey through the Tuscan countryside. This walking holiday also features the popular Italian institution of ‘Agriturismo’ accommodation, with B&Bs in old farmhouses.Across the Val d'Orcia, the introduction of rooms and modifications for housing guests have been designed to reflect the original character of the building and locality. All rooms have en-suite facilities, breakfast included on all days and evening meals included on two nights where there are no suitable alternative dining options readily available.
