Southern Tuscany is therefore the ideal solution for those looking to plan a short holiday of relaxation and fine wine.
Staying in Montepulciano is a truly unique experience: the landscape surrounding this town, completely immersed in nature, is characterised by large hills completely covered in vineyards which produce Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Montepulciano is not only synonymous with good wine. A few km away is the Lucciola Bella Nature Reserve, which can be visited entirely on foot thanks to its network of gentle paths.
As one of the oldest towns in Tuscany, Saturnia has preserved the ancient charm of the Cascate del Mulino, an area accessible to the public where the 38°C sulphurous spring waters flow naturally in a series of waterfalls. A visit to this magnificent natural spectacle is a must on any tour of Southern Tuscany. For those planning to combine the warmth of the spa waters with the possibility of going on pleasant walks, staying in Chianciano Terme and the surrounding area is the best solution. The town is distinctive for having largely preserved its layout over the centuries and for the plethora of hiking opportunities in the local nature.
