The Amiata is a large open-air museum, an environmental park where art, culture and nature meet happily.

Arcidosso is a municipality with four thousand inhabitants that rises at the foot of Mount Amiata. Perched on a hill, from which dominates the underlying territories and which gives it an austere and mystical appearance, Arcidosso is famous for the beauty of its inhabited area, characterized by very ancient buildings, and for the great charm of its landscapes and its scenarios, which offer views of the mountains, hills and sea; the origins of the village are very old and its streets are the guardians of typically medieval architectures and artistic heritage. It is about 56 km from the administrative capital, 73 km from Siena. The ski slopes of the Amiata area are about 10 km away, while 12 km is the distance that separates Arcidosso from the summit of Mount Amiata.

Among the peaks that rise up south of the Amiata, Monte Labbro is the most recognizable and panoramic. Protected by a Regional Nature Reserve covering 630 hectares, it is today the center of a LIFE program funded by the European Union. On the summit stands the Tower of David, the curious monument built in the nineteenth century by David Lazzaretti, the “prophet of the Amiata”, who founded the Giurisdavidici movement and was killed in 1878. The itinerary that reaches the top from the end of the road it’s very short. A stack is required to enter the cave. The restoration of the Tower of David began in November 2004.

Of great interest is the historic center of Santa Fiora, which has at its top a square overlooking the Town Hall, in addition to what remains of the medieval fortifications. Recently a museum of mines has been set up, which although not extensive and documented as that of Abbadia, marks a significant evocation of the mining era experienced intensively in the territory of Santa Fiora and Castellazzara (mercury mines of Siele and Morone).
From the square, along Via Carolina, we reach the Church of the Pieve (of the Saints Flora and Lucilla, patron of the village), where is the work of art, perhaps the most relevant of the entire Amiata territory. This is the collection of valuable ceramics by Andrea della Robbia (1435-1525), authentic gems of Tuscan art, both for technical execution, of which the perfect preservation over the centuries is proof, as well as for artistic sensitivity. Among them we point out the Madonna della Cintola, the Baptism and the Last Supper, as well as a triptych with the Coronation in the center and the saints Francesco and Girolamo in the side panels.

Saturnia is a fraction of the town of Manciano, in the hilly inland of the Grosseto Maremma, which stands on the top of a hill overlooking the renowned thermal springs located in the center of the eponymous thermal tourism area that extends for a radius of about 30 km between Monte Amiata and the hills of Albegna and Fiora.
The sulphurous water at 37 and a half degrees have renowned therapeutic properties and give relaxation and wellbeing to just immergervisi. However, the contact with nature is noteworthy, at the same time as harsh as the Maremma can be – especially in the summer – with colors ranging from dark green to yellow, brown in all shades up to almost black. The flow rate of the source is about 800 liters per second and this guarantees an optimal water change. The characteristics of the water are described as sulfur, carbon, sulfate, bicarbonate-alkaline, earthy, with the presence of hydrogen sulfide gas and carbon dioxide. The mineral salts dissolved per liter are 2.79 grams.

The Amiata is an ancient volcano now extinct and with a large presence of water; its soil was once the site of numerous mineral deposits and today is the main place in Tuscany to practice winter sports and spend a pleasant holiday. The most important municipalities of the district are: Abbadia San Salvatore, Piancastagnaio, Santa Fiora, Arcidosso, Castel del Piano and Seggiano; these villages are characterized by the particularity of their monuments, their history and their strong attachment to traditions and religious celebrations.

On the mountain there is also the Mount Amiata Wildlife Park, which preserves and safeguards numerous animal species, such as the wolf, which for a long time has been missing from these places, the buzzard, the owl, the yew and the mouflon; there are also many vegetative varieties that find their natural environment: maple, wild cherry, chestnut, holly, Etruscan violet and Scilla.

Pitigliano was already a place frequented and inhabited since the time of the Etruscans, when numerous settlements dug into the tufa and attested by the late Bronze Age (XII-XI century a.C.) were founded here.
The first news of Pitigliano appears in a bull sent by Pope Nicholas II to the provost of the cathedral of Sovana in 1061, where it is already indicated as the place of jurisdiction of the family of the Aldobrandeschi counts. In 1293 Anastasia, daughter of Countess Margherita Aldobrandeschi, married Romano Orsini, bringing the county of Sovana as a dowry and the county seat was transferred to Pitigliano. The Orsinis ruled the Pitigliano County for centuries, defending them from the continuous attempts of subjugation by Siena and Orvieto first, and then of the Medici Florence. It was only in 1574 that Niccolò IV Orsini ceded the fortress to the Medici family and in 1604 Pitigliano was annexed to the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, sold by Count Gian Antonio Orsini to settle his debts.
Today it is a well-known tourist destination thanks to the peculiarity of its historic center, which has allowed its inclusion in the list of the most beautiful villages in Italy of the ANCI.

Located on an enchanting hill of 564 m. above sea level, Montalcino still retains its charm of an ancient medieval village. Its territory, which is part of the Natural and Cultural Art Park of the Val d’Orcia, is covered by vines (from which are obtained high-quality wines such as the famous Brunello), olive trees and woods in which holm oaks prevail. from the Latin term (Ilex) probably derives the name Montalcino, Mons Ilcinus. The first important permanent presence on the territory is linked to the archaeological site of Poggio alla Civitella (on a hill 3 km from Montalcino) with Etruscan remains from the Archaic and Hellenistic periods: from the 6th century onwards. B.C. the hill hosted a village and later a fortress with three defensive circuits, presumably abandoned during the III century. B.C.
