Les villages du Val d’Orcia

  • Les villages du Val d’Orcia

    Les villages du Val d’Orcia ont conservé le tracé des rues médiévales ainsi que leur fier esprit urbain, une fierté en phase avec leur statut actuel de hameaux glorifiés Le majestueux village de San Quirico abrite une Eglise paroissiale faite de grès et de travertin local, avec trois remarquables portails et colonnes reposant sur deux lionnes en pierre. Son parc attenant, le Horti Leonini, est une illustration parfaite des jardins classiques Italiens, avec ses parterres géométriques.  Le Rocca d’Orcia, un village fortifié, anciennement propriété du clan guerrier des Salimbeni, dispose d’un audacieux château où Ste Catherine de Sienne a appris à lire et écrire. Une avenue bordée de cyprès mène jusqu’au château, perché sur un piton rocheux. Castiglione d’Orcia, dernier hameau avant Monte Amiata, est un village bien préservé, avec une forteresse en ruines et un point de vue panoramique sur Rocca d’Orcia. Une apaisante balade autour de ce hameau du XVème siècle vous conduira à la charmante Piazza Il Vecchietta, avec sa jolie et photogénique fontaine en travertin.

Carrara marble quarries Cinque Terre PRIVATE TOUR from Siena

- Follow in the Master's footsteps as you trace Michelangelo's tracks to the marble quarries of Carrara. Carrara is where he went (250 miles was no small feat then) to hand pick his marble for his Pieta' and from which came the marble for, yes, the David.
- Nowhere in the world is like the "Cinque Terre" or "Five Lands", two of which are included in this tour; Vernazza and Manarola. These quaint, colorful seaside towns combine with the blues and greens in nature to create a stunning, scenic palette. Take this all in with both walks around town and a drive down a panoramic road. The entire area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
- Enjoy typical Tuscan cuisine in Colonnata, world renowned home of Lardo di Colonnata, a local delicacy of pork fat aged in marble vats.
