We call it roadway to haven to bagni san Filippo hot spring because this is one of the most astonish roads of Tuscany.
From il Fontanaro eco farm and holiday villas take the road 71 to Chiusi Chianciano Terme and before Chianciano terme turn left to the brown sign of MONTE AMIATA.
First stop: LA FOCE GARDENS
One of the great private gardens of Italy, Tuscany‟s La Foce‟s “absolutely breathtaking” and “fabulous” gardens are open every Wednesday afternoon for guided tours beginning on the hour at 3,4,5 and 6 pm (April-October, in winter at 3 pm only). Admission: €10. The beautiful wisteria arbor has by now burst into bloom. Also to be enjoyed are the splendid views over the Val d‟Orcia and the iconic zigzag road that links farms to the villa. It was conceived for its practicality and beauty by La Foce owner Iris Origo and architect Cecil Pinsent. You can admire the use of travertine marble throughout the garden in the fountains, pathways and sculptures.
SECOND STOP: IL DOPO LAVORO
