Nature Train ride

  • Nature Train ride

    This is a superb way of taking in the Tuscan landscape and lifestyle, often with a traditional market or quirky food festival as the highlight. For many, it’s already a highlight to ride on an old steam train through Unesco-heritage landscape of Val d’Orcia. The vintage (or steam) train service runs from March to December and takes in the best of Siena province – the Val d’Orcia, the Crete Senesi and Monte Amiata. Wherever possible, the journey is linked to a local festival or food fair, such as the spring wine fair or autumn mushroom festival in Castiglione d’Orcia. Our favourite trips include the Etruscan tour to Chiusi; the Siena main market; the Montalcino Brunello wine fair, the San Quirico oil fair and the San Giovanni d’Asso truffle fair. Try and book before your holiday as it’s extremely popular with locals too.
