Val d'Orcia - Montalcino


Summer is already over, so it’s time to finish this Italian Holiday trilogy at last.
Our last vacation week began in this little medieval town in southern Tuscany in the valley of the Orcia river.
Val d’Orcia is characterised by gentle, carefully cultivated hills occasionally broken by gullies and by picturesque towns and villages. It is a landscape which has become familiar through its depiction in works of art from the Renaissance painting to the modern film and photograph. You know perhaps, that Ridley Scott shoots his millenium blockbuster Gladiator's paradise scenes just in the Orcia valley. Also unforgettable English Patient finds its background there. Whereas the Shakespearean classic Midsummer’s Night Dream with Michelle Pfeiffer, sets direct in this charming town, etc.
Montalcino with its medieval walls built in the 13th century, is also famous for its Brunello di Montalcino, counted among the most prestigious of Italian wines. Perfect supper place. Brunellos by the glass, mmmmm... lucky to be here!

  20. Italy agrees with you my dear. These photos are stunning, you are indeed lucky to be there. I love your outfit too, the bright blouse pops nicely against the neutrals of your shorts and hat. You look like you belong there.
