The Hills Around Siena
Fed up with the same old holidays in a city of art? Tired of staying in hotels, B&Bs or aparthotels?
If the destination of your next holidays in Tuscany is the town of the Palio, renting a farmhouse or an apartment in a holiday farm in the hills around Siena
may be an excellent solution.
You will find plenty of offers; just look at the myriad of ads for holiday rentals in Siena and in Tuscany!
And reaching Piazza del Campo, the pulsing heart of the town of the 17 contrade
, from your holiday house will be child`s play.
Here you have a brief introduction to the many medieval villages scattered in the 36 municipalities that compose the province of Siena. North and north-east of Siena stretch Upper Val d`Elsa
(with San Gimignano) and the
district (Castellina, Gaiole and Radda). West of the town of the Palio is the Val di Merse
(Chiusdino). The Crete Senesi
(Buonconvento and Trequanda), Val d`Orcia
(Montalcino, Pienza and
Montepulciano), Val di Chiana
(Chianciano Terme), Cetona
and mount Amiata
are south of Siena.
In the next few pages of this brief travel guide to Siena you will find some descriptions and pieces of advice to help you plan your holidays.
Do not forget that once you have reached the farmhouse or the apartment in holiday farm you have rented for your holidays in Siena, you can have lots of healthy and relaxing
bike and horseback rides in the green Tuscan countryside
