Star' Rating:

TRAVELER COMMENT: Stella has a tremendous breadth and depth of Siena from both a historical perspective as well as a current day resident. We have had numerous tours in the past, Stella ranks at the top. She did the impossible with our group of 3 teenagers and 4 adults, she kept everyone's attention throughout the entire tour which she extended to answer all of our questions.

 

The Abbey  of San Galgano and the Val di Merse

 

One of the most fascinating abbey near Siena is the Abbey of San Galgano, a local saint, once a soldier who chose to stop using his weapons and who decided to be a follower of the Lord. Still today the Sword in the Stone is one of the symbols of this valley where the abundant nature of the Farma river is the protagonist together with the romanesque monuments just like the Abbey of Saint Mustiola in Torri, the Church of Ponte allo Spino, the Etruscan Museum of Murlo, the noble family villas just like Cetinale and Celsa.

 

During our tour we will visit farms with the cinta senese porks, typical of Siena and the delicious  goat cheeses produced by biodinamic farms.

 

Get you camera handy and follow me in this journey through nature and art!
