"Under the Tuscan sun"
However you want to spend your time in Tuscany around the wedding events, the area is full of wonders.
If you find time during the weekend or are extending your trip, here are some of our favourite places to visit.
The thermal water of Bagno Vignoni flows from the main square (piazza delle Acque) through small channels where the Romans already had their foot bath! In summer nature lovers can bathe in the pool known as the "gora" (mid-warm water) in the Parco dei Mulini below the hamlet of Bagno Vignoni.
Bagni San Filippo
For nature lovers the Fosso Bianco is the perfect place, a stream in the woods at the confluence of several hot springs in a series of pools where you can swim all the year long and enjoy the special limestone formations that for their shapes have inspired the evocative such names as 'the white whale' or 'the glacier'.
Pienza enjoys a strategic position standing high atop a hill, dominating all the Orcia Valley with extraordinary views. This charming village is widely known as the "ideal city of the Renaissance", the creation of the great humanist Enea Silvio Piccolomini who later became Pope Pius II.
This medieval hilltop town in Tuscany is surrounded by vineyards and is known for its vino nobile red wine.
