The Siena Valdichiana is perfect for hotel and agritourism stays, and every town is a good starting point for visiting not only the surrounding parts of Tuscany (Val d’Orcia, Crete, Monte Amiata), but also Umbria and northern Lazio.
We recommend starting in Sinalunga, a spectacular part of the Siena Valdichiana, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves: for this reason, it’s perfect for tourists who love the countryside. Continue to Trequanda, with its 13th-century castle, before arriving in Montepulciano. Here, you can visit the Temple of San Biagio or be enveloped by the silence of the cathedral; you can also sip on a delicious glass of Vino Nobile in a wine bar in the historic centre.
Chianciano Terme, famous for its hot springs, also vaunts an interesting town centre, while Sarteano is home to a beautiful Renaissance church. After Cetona, you’ll reach San Casciano dei Bagni, renowned for its thermal baths.
