When driving, riding, or cycling along the roads between Montepulciano and Sarteano, from San Casciano dei Bagni to Pienza through the Val d'Orcia, the urge to stop and take in some of the extraordinary landscapes one
encounters is irresistible. These characteristic vistas demand contemplation, and travellers rarely continue their journey before taking a photograph as a personal memento.
These landscapes have become internationally recognised symbols of wellbeing and harmony with nature, of the Italian lifestyle, and of the collection of values that makes Tuscany unique. This recognition has inspired the formulation of a grand landscapes tour. The project includes integrated services for visitors, and an information network to enable travellers to make the most of their visit, and help them discover this unique region.
