Valdichiana is a land whose borders are uncertain, yet its identity is strong and one-of-a-kind.

When you visit Valdichiana, its core values will resonate within you: its history, whose origins are traced back to the mysterious Etruscan civilization; the wellbeing of mind and body, thanks to its thermal springs; the great wines and the splendid foods; the graceful architecture and the inimitable natural landscapes.

This all-encompassing sense of harmony is the typical feature of our land.

Ten are the towns that make up Valdichiana senese: Cetona, Chianciano Terme, Chiusi, Montepulciano, Pienza, San Casciano dei Bagni, Sarteano, Sinalunga, Torrita di Siena, and Trequanda. These spectacular burgs are sprinkled along an imaginary 40-kilometer line; at its North, the Crete Senesi; eastwards lies the Trasimeno lake; going southwards, you’ll meet the wide valleys that have their root in Rome and Umbria; going west, you’ll get to Val d’Orcia. Each of those doorways still bears the traces of the way our ancestors first accessed Valdichiana Senese.
