• Buonconvento is recognized as ‘one of the most beautiful villages in Italy’, I BORGHI PIU BELLI D'ITALIA. The main street is lined with historic palazzi and Buonconvento also plays host to two museums, including the Sacred Art Musuem exhibiting significant religious paintings from churches across the area
• The village of Montalcino, home to the famous Brunello di Montalcino stands hilltop covered almost entirely with vineyards and at its centre signature examples of Medieval architecture: the Palazzo dei Priori and the wonderful Rocca fortress, built circa XIV century. Nine kilometres to the south of Montalcino, in a timeless rural landscape surrounded by yet more Brunello vineyards, can be found the Abbey of Sant’Antimo
• Pienza has been declared “Heritage of Mankind” by Unseco and is considered to be the “symbol city” of the Italian Renaissance (as well as famous for its wonderful pecorino cheese)
• Montepulciano, in this same area is another charming village, known as the pearl of the 16th century and renowned for the production of wines such as Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
• "Fashionistas" will be able to indulge their passion, especially in the famous Prada factory store, located on the road to Florence
• Siena, this proud Medieval city has much to offer with its Duomo, churches and musuems sitting amongst its tight and winding lanes, which themselves ultimately converge on to the open space of the Piazza del Campo. The Campo is the stage for the Palio (which takes place twice a year on July 2nd and August 16th) which is well worth a visit and not simply for the race itself, but also the events and dinners held in each of the contradas in the build up to and immediately after the main event
• San Gimignano is famous for its 14 towers (originally it had 72), erected as a symbol of wealth and power of the merchant families who lived there. The city became part of the sites protected by UNESCO in 1990
