Create your Castiglione D'orcia itinerary in minutes
Anyone who has ever been to the amazing region of Tuscany can tell you that even though visiting Florence and Pisa is enough to leave your heart in Central Italy, it's not enough to truly comprehend what Tuscany has to offer. And one of the places, required to fully explore the region is the medieval village of Castiglione d'Orcia which is one of the top places in Italy to immerse in the centuries of Tuscany's wine-making traditions. Surrounded by the picturesque hills of the Val d'Orcia and listed among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, this charming destination boasts incredible views as well as extensive history and rich cultural heritage. Once it was a vital point along the Via Francigena, an ancient road connecting France with the Eternal City. Following the traces of the pilgrims is a great way to admire the vast stretches of gorgeous vineyards, and one of the most inspiring things you can do during your stay there is going wine-tasting. Another "must-do" thing in Castiglione d'Orcia is exploring the ruins of the ancient Rocca Aldobrandesca and the impressive Santa Maria Maddalena and Santi Stefano churches, housing the "Madonna With Child" masterpiece by Simone Martini.
