Medium difficulty


The route from Sant’Antimo and Montalcino round trip is a truly suggestive itinerary. A journey through the vineyards where the Brunello that has made this land famous all over the world is produced. This itinerary has an initial descent and a rather challenging uphill return among the large vineyards, therefore it is pleasant for an average trained person. If necessary, you can start from Sant’Antimo, visit the abbey and tackle the ascent on the outward journey instead of the return. You certainly can’t miss the splendid Abbey of Sant’Antimo: a monastic complex completely surrounded by greenery, a place of meditation and retreat where you can disconnect from the frenetic pace and re-embrace the slow pace of nature.
