We stayed here during the Xmas holidays. Even though there wasn't enough snow for skiing we toured the nearby towns and thoroughly enjoyed the region.

Excellent meal in a stunning location. Bar La Vetta. Polenta with mushrooms, Italian sausage with oven roasted potatoes. Great little trattoria with fast, friendly service. The walk up the ski slope, no snow at this time of year, is well worth it for the views...More

Whilst cycling up the monte Amiata, we discovered the Indiana Adventure Park. Even though it was a 1.5 hour drive from Cortona, we decided to visit both the top and the Adventure park with our teenage kids a few days thereafter. The park is great...More

We had really strange feelings approaching alpine woods in the middle of Tuscany. I mean, few kilometers of ascend can make such a big difference in terms of environment and geology. From the distant and endless tuscan hills you are suddenly entering mountain range with...More

The Monte Amiata is a mountain between Grosseto and Siena, about 1700 m high. It is a very good place for hiking in summer, with numerous paths through woods. Once you reach the top you can enjoy the wonderful landscapes which are unique and characteristic...More

We were at the montain 14 years ago and still it is a very nice experience to go there. The view this time of the year from the mountain-top is amazing (no leafes on the trees). After walking the few metres to the top we...More

The courses are great, the staff is super friendly and the landscape is just incredible. If you have a day to spare during your vacation in Tuscany take the road to the mountains and spend a day in the forrest.

I was very much disappointed to take the trouble to go up (on a good road!) to Monte Amiata. There is no view at all, except for maybe a pie of 15 degrees. Awfull high-tech, antennas, outdated chairlifts, rocked down hotels and restaurants, souvenir baracks....More

We had a beautiful day driving up the mountain to reach Mount Amiata cross. The forest is pretty and relaxing. The roads are well maintained and we saw many cars parked along the way as people hiked the hills looking for porcini mushrooms. The forest...More

Monte Amiata, forming the west flank of the Val d'Orcia, is the highest mountain in Tuscany. It's much cooler on the mountain than in the valley, so a nice place to escape the heat in summer. There are several small towns on the mountain, the...More
