Walking from Montalcino to the Abbey of Sant'Antimo - Piazza dei Sorgenti, Bagno Vignoni | 20 km
A beautiful scenic walk through the hills of the Val d’Orcia, along several hill-top villages, connected by cypress lined roads that wind through the neatly tended rowsof vineyards and olive groves.
The route starts in Montalcino and continues among the enchanting views of Brunello vineyards and the rolling hills of the Val d'Orcia.
The first attraction of the day is the Abbey of Sant'Antimo, a beautiful and evocative Romanesqu abbey. Constructed of mellow, cream-colored travertine, the abbey was built in the 12th century. The drive along the winding country road leading to the monastery is an incredible pleasure for your eyes: vineyards, olive groves, green hills, isolated farmhouses and a small chapel at Villa a Tolli.
The trail ends at the bus station in Bagno Vignoni, near the pedestrian bridge.
