Chianciano Terme is one of the more famous thermal sites in Italy and it resides within the centre of a beautiful territory that is located between the Val d’Orcia and the Crete Senesi (UNESCO World Heritage Site) the ‘Valdichiana’, the hills of Vino Nobile and the renaissance splendour of Montepulciano and Pienza, boasting a multitude of destination options; a place of wellbeing, relaxation and an excellent starting point for discovering the beautiful sites that Tuscany and Umbria have to offer.
In addition to a relaxing stay in Chianciano and a visit to the Etruscan exhibition, documenting the inhabitants of ancient Tuscany and therefore the real forefathers of the ‘Tuscan Identity’, other activities are also available; experiencing the weekly market, a walk along the narrow medieval alleys of the Historic Centre, a relaxing and immersive walk along the Tuscan countryside in the Valle Park, a tour aboard the tourist train to get a different view of the city, the medieval borgo and the Thermal complexes or a visit to the Art Museum or Sacred Art Museum.
How about spending a few relaxing hours in the Tere Sensoriali Baths or in one of Theia’s thermal baths? The territory, which is tucked away from the larger urban centres and industrial areas, is ideal for carrying out activities such as trekking, cycling and tourist excursions.
Horseback trips can also be arranged along with simple walks, on a journey of discovery between Val d’Orcia and Valdichiana. In fact, evocative routes have been created within the woodlands that overhang the thermal town where excursions can be scheduled to include food and wine tastings within the Pietraporciana Natural Reserve and in the borgo that appears to be “frozen in time”, Castiglioncello sul Trinoro, with paths, caves and pic-nic areas available.
