Tuscany Siena Montalcino Pienza

Hiking in val d'Orcia through villages and vineyards

Tuscany is wonderful. Walking through some of its most beautiful landscapes is even better, especially if Super Tuscany wines and tasty food await you at the end of the day!

The countryside of Val d'Orcia in Tuscany has been a UNESCO heritage since 2004. Its magical atmosphere, light colors and gentle hills are among some of the most attractive landscapes of the world.

Backpacking each day from village to village gives you a chance to explore ancient villages such as Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano and San Quirico d'Orcia.
Along the trail there are several cultural opportunities, such as visiting ancient Roman churches, neo-renaissance "borghi" and other interesting buildings that make this place unique in the world... This hike is a real dive into the Italian cultural heritage.

In addition to being professionals hikers, our guides may also tell you something more about the history, culture and art of the places you are travelling through. Without forgetting that in the evening you may want to taste Super Tuscany wines and traditional local food.

The entire hiking tour takes place in Val d'Orcia. The change in elevation is low but the length of the hike may be longer compared to other tours. There are no special technical requirements, but good physical fitness is recommended.

If you do not want to backpack every day from village to village but have daily hikes from the same accommodation, contact us and we will try to satisfy your needs!
