Along the via Francigena in the lands of Siena

A day tour immersed in the Montagnola Senese, a site of community interest which is largely covered by evergreen oaks. During the ride, on dirt roads and paved, you will visit the  12th century hermitage of San Leonardo al Lago which houses beautiful frescoes by Lippo Vanni. Skirtting around the fairytale Castello della Chiocciola you will climb  the hill overlooking the valley which is dominated by the intact city walls with 15 fortified towers of Monteriggioni, a bastion of the Republic of Siena:

‘’For just as at Montereggione the great towers

crown the encircling wall; so the grim giants

whom Jove still threatens when the thunder roars’’

(Dante, Inferno XXXI, 40-41)

Then ye shall press to the underlying romanesque complex millennial of Badia a Isola. On the return journey the tour includes a visit to the ancient cellars of a farm makers of fine Chianti Classico wine to be followed by a wine tasting.
