Arrival in Montepulciano
Today you will arrive in Montepulciano, for which we suggest you access from Rome, Pisa or Florence. You can do it first by train and then arrive by taxi, while you start to enjoy the beauty of the Tuscany landscapes.
As a curious fact, we would tell you that this village, located on a hill with impressive panoramic views, with a typically medieval appearance, is known for its extraordinary red wines, with the Nobile Wine of Montepulciano as the best known.
From Montepulciano to Pienza
For your first day of walking, you should start walking from the Church of San Biagio until you reach Monticchiello, where we suggest you stop for a good coffee and taste the typical food of the region.
Once you arrive in Pienza, you will find yourself in one of the most elegant cities in Tuscany and where you will have the opportunity to try the authentic and famous Pecorino cheese. During the afternoon, walk along the Corso Rossellino, the main road.
Length: 15 km
From Pienza to the Bagno Vignoni Springs
On this day you will walk surrounded by hills, forests and picturesque villages that will take you to the thermal springs of Bagno Vignoni, where we advise you to enjoy a good hot water bath that arises naturally from the subsoil.
The town of Bagno Vignoni was always a thermal centre where all social classes could attend to enjoy its hot springs and take advantage of its benefits. In addition to the baths, we recommend visiting the old natural pool in the village and getting close to the famous Osteria (hostel) behind the pool.
Length: 16 km
Overnight: Bagno Vignoni
From Bagno Vignoni to Montalcino passing through Sant'Antimo
During your fourth day on the road, a quite difficult hike through the dry riverbeds of the area awaits you until you reach the beautiful Abbey of Sant'Antimo, a monastic complex founded in 750, which bears the title of a major architectural jewel of the Tuscan Romanesque period.
After you visit the Abbey and discover its history and legends, you will have an included transfer that will take you to Montalcino, where you will stay tonight.
Length: 14 km
From Montalcino to Buonconvento across Crete Senesi
For this day, we advise you to leave with a lot of energy, because you will have a long but charming journey, before you reach the final destination of your hiking trip in Tuscany. You will pass through the Brunello region, where the vineyards and olive groves will be in your wake.
Then you will advance through the hills and forests of Crete Senesi and enjoy its particular geological formations, as well as the urban oasis that you will encounter as you walk. When you finish the day, in Buonconvento, we advise you to take a walk through its ancient walls and the Podestá Palace.
Length: 17 km
Return from Buonconvento
Today you have a transfer included from your hotel in Buonconvento to Buonconvento train station. From there, you can head back to Rome, Pisa or Florence, wherever it will be most comfortable for you to take your flight back to your home city.*
If you are passionate about walking, once you finish your trip in Tuscany, you can join another of our proposals for hiking trails in Italy: Hiking in the Cinque Terre, Hiking along the Amalfi Coast or the Via Francigena.
