The adventure continues as the path goes through vineyards and cultivated fields in the Montepulciano countryside, leading to the Nature Reserve at the Lake of Montepulciano. Venturing through this area, visitors will find le Balze, which are steep ravines composed of compact yellow sandstone rising up from the olive groves and vineyards of the surrounding terrain.
Moving on through the Montepulciano region towards the town of Acquaviva, the next stop is the Church of the Madonna of the Oaks, which was founded in 1690 after a miraculous event. Later, tourists will find themselves in Argiano, a small, cozy village with buildings scattered along the scenic Montepulciano hillside.
After a brief respite in Argiano, the quaint charcoal building of the Madonna of the Turkey Oak is a lovely spot to visit and enjoy. This site hosts one of the most popular folk festivals in the Valdichiana Sienese.
