Tuscany Discovery Tour
The ancient medieval town of San Quirico d'Orcha lies in the heart of the Orcia valley, amidst a wonderful landscape of green and golden hills for which Tuscany is famous. Due to its position in the middle of the main Via Francigena pilgrimage route, it has long been a staging post for wayfarers, pilgrims and merchants on the way to Rome. San Quirico is just one of the many hilltop towns and villages that dominate the skyline of this part of Tuscany.

The self-select continental breakfast includes cereal, cheese and cooked meats, bread, croissants and home-produced honey. Tea and coffee is available.
Lunch (payable locally)
You can buy a picnic lunch from the hotel (order the night before). Alternatively ingredients can be bought in local shops, including a supermarket five minutes' walk away. On some days it may be possible to eat in a café during a walk or excursion; your leaders will advise you of all the options.
The five course set menu features many Tuscan specialities, using homemade pasta and locally-produced oil, meat and cheese. An alternative is available for vegetarians; however we recommend that those with special diets discuss their requirements with the manager or chef.
There is a well-stocked bar serving beer, wine and spirits.
The friendly atmosphere of our holidays continues into the evening.
Enjoy a glass of wine or local beer before hearing about the next day's activities, then join your fellow guests for a leisurely meal.
One evening our guests can learn more about olive oil and take part in a tasting session, very popular with our guests.
Your leader will be checking out for other local events going on nearby, or you may prefer to relax on the terrace enjoying the panoramic view or in the bar with a drink.
