Soaking in the Idyllic
Beauty of Tuscany
O, Tuscany - just hearing the word itself makes one sigh. The time here has slowed down so you could explore the beauty of its marvelous panoramas; the gentle rolling hills dotted with hamlets just lie in the open, waiting for you to capture the essence of this rural life in perfect harmony with the land.
Val d’Orcia will give your more than enough to see, drink and eat during our six-day tour. So pack your gear and be prepared to take in some spectacular views of the rousing Tuscan landscapes, indulge in delicious food, wine, and feel the living history all around. Put bluntly - this place is the real postcard material, and you’ll be taking the pictures.
Where else to start our tour than in the Val d’Orcia. We’ll settle for what is without doubt one of the most photographed villas in Tuscany, Podere Belvedere. If the weather hears our photoprayers, we’ll catch the first sun touching the morning mists. But not just the villa will be in our finder, but the whole fairytale landscape with hundreds of hills and waves and the towering Monte Amiata in the background.
Right after breakfast we will make our way to Bagno Vignoni, ancient spa village with a hot water pool in the main square. The evening will be in the spirit of yet another famous Tuscan site - the cypress grove in the middle of the rolling fields.
We’ll be taking it easy on this breather day. In the morning, we’ll take in some views from and from around Pienza and photograph the stunning Capella Vitaleta, a small church flanked by cypresses crowning the hill, all casting shadows in the light mist.
We’ll make it to Siena famous for its medieval brick buildings to keep us busy for most of the day. On the way back, we’ll drive through Crete Senesi - its rolling countryside, traditional farmhouses, cypress trees and wavy fields are the images that actually pop up in your head when you think of Tuscany. A plenty of great pictures guaranteed there.
Cypress Trees Road
Only early birds get to watch the landscape wake up - the sky will turn first colours for us about half an hour before the sunrise, the time when the fog starts to crawl in. We start high above with the main motive - one of the roads with cypress trees leading to the typical Tuscan villa.
Saying our goodbyes to Val d’Orcia, we will return to spend the last morning by Podere Belvedere - this time, however, we’ll photograph from another spot to capture this marvelous scene from a different angle than on the first day. On the way back to Firenze we may make a scenic stop in San Gimignano (depending on the time schedule of our flights, though).
