HOSTED SPOTS FULL
Women Winemakers, Local Artisans, and Country Walks
Arguably one of the most beautiful parts of Italy, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Orcia Valley, has a multitude of layers to be discovered within this light adventure. As you walk along the famous “white roads/gravel roads” of Tuscany, you will be met with stunning views and warm greetings from the people working and living on the surrounding land.
Along the way we’ll meet female winemakers – a rarity in Italy, the largest family run saffron farm in the country, and second-generation leather makers. Cultural visits to the Monte Oliveto Maggiore Abbey and the towns of Montalcino, San Quirico d’Orcia and cheese making Pienza will round out this adventure that is sure to awaken your taste buds and relax the soul.
Activity: Countryside walking; easy 10-14 km (6 – 8 miles) walks on a hard-packed gravel road and light walking trails – anyone with an average fitness level can enjoy.
