Sights of the Val d'Orcia or Valdorcia of Tuscany, Italy

Val d'Orcia

The Val d'Orcia is one of the most diverse and yet distinctive areas in Tuscany, Italy, and the landscape of the Val d'Orcia has been designated a UNESCO world heritage centre. The Valdorcia is more than just the valley of the river Orcia. It covers a large part of the area south the the Siennese hills almost as far as Monte Amiata. It includes not only the Crete Senesi and the "big sky" landscapes of the valley itself, but also beautiful towns such as Pienza, San Quirico and Montalcino. A number of famous castles in various states of repair dot the area, including the Rocca d'Orcia, and the grounds of La Foce are among the finest 20 C gardens in Tuscany.

Worth a prolonged visit. More information about the Valdorcia.
