Today we recommend a beautiful itinerary that starts from San Quirico d’Orcia, passes through the Castle of Ripa d’Orcia, crosses Bagno Vignoni and Vignoni Alto and then returns to San Quirico. We are talking about the Avinionis Balnea, also known as Via del Grano which crosses the most beautiful and characteristic hills of the Val d’Orcia. An itinerary that you can cover on foot in about 4 hours with a difference in height of minimal difficulty. Obviously, given the overall length of the route, you can take part of the route and then return by bus.
