South of Siena is a region of beautiful rolling hills also referred to as Val d'Orcia. Nestled in this area are some surprisingly well preserved medieval towns each with their own character and specialty products.
Montalcino, for instance, is home to the world famous Brunello di Montalcino wine, which is locally produced in wineries scattered around the town. A visit to one of these wineries is definitely recommended and can be arranged.
Other towns of interest are Pienza (famous for its pecorino cheese) and Montepulciano (Nobile di Montepulciano wine) with its beautiful San Biagio church.
There are many great restaurants along the way to choose from (we will be glad to advise if you need help in choosing).
