Leaving Siena behind us, the Francigena continues to Monteroni d'Arbia, Buonconvento and San Quirico d'Orcia, with its splendid collegiate church midway between Romanesque and Gothic. In the countryside around San Quirico, you can admire two of the most famous images of Tuscany: the small thicket of cypress trees in I Triboli and the Chapel of the Madonna di Vitaleta.
Before the Francigena winds beyond the Siena territory, there is still so much beauty to experience. The road leads to Bagno Vignoni and its piazza delle Sorgenti, home to a large pool in the centre of the village thanks to which a fog descends upon the surrounding streets during the night: take a relaxing break at the town’s hot springs or enjoy a glass of Orcia DOC and recharge for the rest of the journey.
The last stretch leads to Radicofani and Acquapendente, one of the most unforgettable parts of the Francigena, surrounded by a sea of hills that seem caressed by the wind, dominated from above by Monte Amiata.
