Authentic Val d’Orcia on two wheels

Cycling through the magnificent landscape of the Val d’Orcia, in the Tuscan hills, which has been included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 2004.

The Val d’Orcia, a blend of art and landscape, geographical space and ecosystem, is an expression of wonderful natural features but is also the result and the testimony of the people who lived there. Through the five municipalities that have given life to the Park of the Val D’Orcia: Castiglione d’Orcia, Montalcino, Pienza, Radicofani and San Quirico d’Orcia, the rolling hills covered by dense vegetation of vineyards, olive groves, cypresses, beeches and chestnut trees, interrupted by old medieval villages, rural houses and fortresses with inaccessible towers, scattered in the isolated and quiet nature of the place. This is the scenario that will be presented to the eyes of the cyclist of the Val d’Orcia, picturesque scenery, just like the portraits from the masters of the Sienese school.
