As a guest once put it, an overdose of scenery. This tour of Tuscany will take us through the incredible Val dOrcia (Orcia Valley), one of the most photographed regions of Tuscany. (All photos on this site are from our tours). It was nearly six hundred years ago when merchants had the idea of combining agricultural land with aesthetically pleasing scenery. Thus giving birth to the concept of landscaping as a man made creation. Today the farmers still pay as much attention to the aesthetics of their land as to the crops. The result is a feast for the eyes. In 2004, UNESCO elevated the Val DOrcia to a World Heritage status need I say more? The Val DOrcia also has gastronomic treasures for the finest of palates, among which Italys most highly rated wines and sheeps cheese.
