You’ll be picked up at the Pisa or Florence airport meeting point at 8am and transferred by car to San Quirico D’Orcia (a two hours trip). After the hotel check-in, we’ll head to Vitaleta Chapel, a little sacred building of the 16th century (under the protection of UNESCO World Heritage Programme) settled on top of a low hill. Later, we’ll go to Pienza, an amazing Renaissance town, where we’ll take photos in the historic centre. From there we’ll reach a panoramic viewpoint on the valley where low hills form the typical Tuscan landscape. We’ll continue our trip to a viewpoint close to Monticchiello to have an overlook of another interesting landscape. On the road back to San Quirico, we’ll stop by some spots with awesome fields full of poppies and other colorful flowers. Back to the hotel to freshen up quickly, we’ll reach a location on the historical Cassia road (a consular Roman road dating 150 b.C. circa) for a photographic session with a small group of cypresses at sunset. Back to the hotel for dinner at the nearby restaurant, where you can taste some delicious traditional food and choose from the range of worldwide famous Tuscan wines. After dinner, we could take a look at the photos to check the results of the day.
Meeting in hotel hall at 7,30am for breakfast then we’ll go to Siena for spending the day visiting the town and its most interesting spots (Duomo, Piazza del Campo, Santa Maria della Scala, etc.). Every corner of Siena is astonishingly filled with historic testify, your biggest problem will be having too many fantastic subjects to capture. At lunchtime, you’ll have the choice of spending a couple of hours by yourself for shopping and going where you prefer (and taking photos, of course).
Then back to the hotel, relax and dinner.
Meeting in hotel hall at early morning (remember your camera and tripod) to go to the “Cypresses” location previously visited (on the Cassia road) to take photos in the total different light of dawn. Then we’ll go to shoot the Belvedere, an old building laid down on a small hillock usually surrounded by mist. Back to the hotel for breakfast then on the road to Montalcino to take photos of the vineyards (here’s the home of “Brunello”, one of the most famous wine in the world). We’ll stop by a winery to take photos of the cellar and wine production and where we could have a light lunch break. In the afternoon, we’ll reach Bagno Vignoni, a Roman thermal village with a huge rectangular tank (called “Square of sources”) at the heart of the village. Back to the hotel for checking-out, then back to Pisa or Florence, according to your request.
