Tuscany Val D'Orcia

Val D'Orcia

Village traditions which have long since disappeared from other areas are perpetuated in this region on the borders of Tuscany. The economy of Val D'Orcia is still based on agriculture, with the inhabitants closely connected to the land and its produce.

This is a marvelous landscape of hills, fields, and streams, with rich clay and tufa soils, similar to the Sienese landscape which enchanted painters, writers and travelers alike. The people of the Val D'Orcia area have resisted the pressures of progress and retained the traditions of the region, particularly that of hospitality, which was offered to visitors particularly during the time the great pilgrimages.

Well worth visiting: the villages of Castelmuzio, Castiglione D'Orcia, Montefollonico, Monte Oliveto, Montichiello, Petrolio, Radicofoni and Bagno Vignoni. The Church of St Anna, the Church of St Antimo and the Church of Spedaletto are all beautiful. There are many routes to be followed on foot or on bike. The most important event has to be the Festival of Val D'Orcia.
