Unesco World Heritage Site, the Val d’Orcia is one of the most famous areas in Italy. If you think about Tuscany, and its landscapes, then usually the picture you are imagining is taken in Val D’Orcia.
The Val d’Orcia is south of Siena, just north of the border with the Lazio Region (the region of Rome), and so less than 2 hours drive from Rome.
For this reason the Val d’Orcia can be definitely the perfect destination for a one day trip excursion from Rome.
You can easily reach the nice middle edge towns that are famous in Val d’Orcia like Castiglione d’Orcia, Pienza, Radicofani, San Quirico d’Orcia, as well as Montalcino, famous also for its Brunello di Montalcino wine.
So either if you are thinking about doing a wine tasting experience, or simply want to see some nice small towns and the beauty of the Tuscan Countryside, then the Val d’Orcia from Rome is an easy and doable excursion.
We can easily arrange for you a private tour in Val d’Orcia departing early in the morning from our bed and breakfast in Rome.
