Start with a trip to the mountains: you can ski on Monte Amiata until Easter, both sides of the mountain have trails for every type of skier, from black diamond trails for experts to bunny slopes for kids. But that’s not all! You can also snowshoe in the frosty woods: slowly reach the mountaintop in the peaceful, snowy landscape, an unforgettable experience that can only end with a bombardino, a cream-based drink with coffee and liqueur.
After a morning up high, spend an afternoon discovering Abbadia San Salvatore, a gem that has both medieval village and mining town in its long history. Longobard King Ratchis founded the abbey in 750 where legend says the holy trinity appeared on a white fir tree. The historical section of the town was built above the Abbey and has remained intact with its narrow streets, old stone doors and a breathtaking view of the Val d'Orcia.
