has perfumes and tastes all its own—every corner has something tasty to offer visitors, from the “frizzante” perfumes of its wines
to the luxurious scent of its truffles. Good cooking
is right at home here thanks to genuine and unique products
envied the world over. It comes as no surprise that these special products have very own museums of their own. The main ingredient is tradition, which allows us to taste and enjoy the dishes of the past. But it’s not just time-honored products that bring us closer to tradition; it’s also the story of the trades with their tools and utensils that tell the story of the area’s farming past.
The Sienese countryside
is a beautiful area where gently rolling hills give way to colorful vineyards, fields rough with clay markings and thick with woods. To learn more about the area’s top wines, visit the Vernaccia di San Gimignano Wine Experience
, the Museum of the old grange and olive oil in Rapolano Terme
and the Museo del Tartufo in San Giovanni D'Asso that celebrates it most precious local product, the truffle.
