Insider’s tips to Tuscany
The Abbey of Sant’ Antimo
Located 10 km from Montalcino and about 9km from the Via Francigena (known as the Pilgrim Route to Rome). Disused since 1992, the Abbey is now home to a small and active congregation.
Hot Springs of Bagno Vignoni
You can find these free and natural ancient hot springs in the town of Bagno Vignoni, situated on a hill in the Val d’Orcia Natural Park. Wear an old swim suit in the springs, though, as the smell of sulphur is nearly impossible to remove!
Pienza, or the Papal City, sits atop a hill overlooking the River Orcia Valley, and is home to the much-heralded Diocesan Museum, which includes significant works dating back to the 12th century.
