Wildest Tuscany

Wildest Tuscany

The southern part of Tuscany, divided from the north by the great volcano Monte Amiata, is even more pastoral than the rest. Rugged, wild, almost untouched for centuries, it has retained its original charm, country life, amazing food, and human pace. Expect solitude and vast vistas.

From Montalcino, head to Sant’Angelo in Colle. Pass through Sant’Angelo Scalo (take a side trip to Castello Banfi and its museum), then on to Arcidosso and Roccalbegna. Visit the dramatic outlook, then stuff yourself with a unique lunch at La Pietra, where most of the vegetables, olive oil, and wine are made in-house. Continue on to the strange long town of Cana, then to Stribugliano and the great views from Castiglioncello Bandini. End up at Sant’Angelo in Colle for a stunning sunset.
