From the magnificent Piazza del Campo, depart Siena on foot as you follow sections of the ancient pilgrim route, ‘Via Francigena’ (which starts in Canterbury, southern England and ends in St Peter’s Square, Rome). The trail heads through the ‘Crete Senesi’ landscape to Monteroni d’Arbia and along typical ‘Strade Bianchi’ (Tuscan white gravel roads). On arrival at Monteroni d’Arbia, a short, private transfer (10mins) will take you to your rural accommodation in the hills above Buonconvento.
Meals included: Breakfast & Dinner
