Hear, understand, walk, live Terre di Siena, a day or a week is not important: "Da Annita" you will have the opportunity to expand space and time.

You will be immersed in a "landscape in motion" where trails and roads unroll hills and cypress trees.
Siena is up north, not too far away and if one hears closely, the echoes of the Palio still resonate. In medieval times, the only road that connected Siena to Arezzo, was right below Rapolano, crossing the Ombrone up to the farm Proceno.
On the horizon to the north, the vineyards-covered hills of Chianti , under your eyes, halt abruptly as they reach the onset of what the poet Mario Luzi described as “immobilized waves”: the rolling clay of Crete. To the south, running down the course of the Ombrone river, you suddenly enter the wide-open Orcia valley.
The wild landscape and bewildering metaphysical scenery in Val d'Orcia is countered by the view of Montalcino so vast and breathtaking and crowned by the vineyards of precious Brunello.
These are also the lands crossed by one of the most important "path of faith" in Europe: the Via Francigena. During the Middle Ages, churches and abbeys of great splendour were built along this road: The Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore in the Crete and in the heart of the Val d'Orcia, the Abbey di Sant'Antimo, a spectacular example of French architecture in Italy, between history and legend, which brings visitors back in time to Charlemagne.
Monte Amiata is a beautiful blue backdrop.With its outline of an ancient dormant volcano, it reminds us that it is our "mother mountain"; from which derived the richness of this land: the Hotspring and the travertine.
Going further east one can find refined examples of the Renaissance which never found space to flourish in Siena, still under the indelebile spell of the Middle Age. In the 1448 Pope Pio II chose to turn his home town, Pienza, into an utopian city.
Not far away, there is Montepulciano and its Nobile wine; an artistic jewel of Renaissance set on a hill between the valleys of Orcia and Chiana, whose green wave-alike vineyards snuggle its townscape so tightly that it seems to be floating on a cloud of pleasure.
Just a few kilometres towards Val di Chiana the landscape becomes more reassuring, groomed and compliant, while the local dialect reflects the ancient Tuscan spoken in Cortona, but also influenced by the language used in Umbria and Upper Lazio.
Val di Chiana, named the Valley of the White Giant, is famous for its prized meat of the largest bovine in the world.
From the Etruscan Chiusi come fascinating suggestions.
The banks of the lake in Chiusi are flanked by two towers, one was built by Siena and the other built by Perugia, which served as a lasting reminder of the ongoing contention for this last bit of Tuscany. The towers have come to be known as “Beccati questo (Take this)” and “Beccati quello (Take that)”. Here the boundaries of Siena are settled tit for tat. Not far away, on the wall of an underground Etruscan tomb, a frescoed dancer carries on timelessly with graceful steps.
