Day 3 – Pienza – Bagno Vignoni
The Crete landscape is no doubt one of the most famous in the world: rolling hills in all the shades of brown or green; sturdy brick farmhouses crowning the hilltops and cypress lined alleys design a perfect scenary that inspired painters since the Middleages. Your hotel has SPA facilities
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ABBEY AND MONTALCINO

A quite hard day walking along dry river beds in a rather wild environment to reach St Antimo a lovely abbey isolated in the middle of a pastoral landscape w Enjoy the abbey and the evening chants of the monks while spending the night in a nearby agriturismo.
In the evening you will reach Montalcino, the capital of Brunello wine ; It is a nice medieval town with plenty of shopping possibilities well worth spending some leisurely time. Night in a hotel in Montalcino.
Day 5 – Montalcino – Buonconvento – 4 hrs walking time
Montalcino is the country of Brunello one of the most famous wine of this region so you will be walking through vineyards and olive trees.
MONTE OLIVETO MAGGIORE
Day 6 – Monte Oliveto – Siena – 3h30 walking time
Start the day with a transfer to Monte Oliveto Maggiore, a red bricks construction in a rugged landscape. Visit the abbey before the tourist rush hours and start walking back toward your hotel or agriturismo. Pick up your luggage and catch a train to Siena.

THE MOST FAMOUS PIAZZA
Day 7 – Siena
Siena is our last stop. Savour a delicious icecream sitting at a Cafe on the hedge of the Piazza del Campo where the famous Palio is run twice in a year. Stroll the small “vicoli” and cobbled streets, admire the purity of the Duomo architecture and taste some of the best italian wines at the Enoteca nazionale before leaving to your next destination
