Painting & Walking Holidays in Tuscany, Italy

Italy • Tuscany • Val d'Orcia


Val d’Orcia – classic Tuscany

An enchanted landscape of deep green cypresses and early morning mists that clear to reveal a patchwork of vineyards and olive groves. Verdant rolling hills embrace dusty white paths that meander towards terracotta farmhouses.

Tuscany is the ultimate paradise for lovers of landscapes with its hilltop villages and towns a living tribute to an age of artistic glories. You may chance upon a Renaissance fresco in the corner of a cool chapel or delight in the architecture of a medieval town square. A holiday in Tuscany satiates all the senses.
