In Southern Tuscany, there’s a special full of art, things to do and magical landscapes. We’re talking about Monte Amiata, in the province of Siena, which faces the rolling landscape of the Val d'Orcia to the northeast and the Maremma on the eastern side.
In ancient times, Monte Amiata was a volcano, but don’t worry, it’s dormant today! It’s also the highest in Italy at 1,736 metres. One of the reasons the area is so stunning is because it’s largely untouches and has maintained its rural charm, making it a paradise for sports lovers and all those wanting to explore the beautiful area by bike, horseback or on foot, and visit the historic villages dotting the territory.
