Chianciano and the surrounding area

What to visit during your holiday in Tuscany, between the Val d'Orcia and the Valdichiana

Chianciano Terme is also known as the city of health, and is famous on both a national and international level; wellness is understandably one of the first elements of the holiday awaiting you in this corner of Tuscany, but far from the only one.
Val d’Orcia and the Valdichiana, offers many naturalistic, cultural and artistic pleasures, ideal for organizing trips to discover the surrounding area.

Places to visit near Chianciano Terme

Montepulciano, 8 km
Just 8 km away from our hotel is Montepulciano, famous for its Noble Wine but also a lovely town to visit, due to its suggestive position and ancient history (the town was founded by the Etruscans). A typical activity when travelling here is to visit the many underground wine cellars of the town, where you can taste local products accompanied by the famous wines.
Pienza, 20 km
The most important town of the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1996, Pienza is the birthplace of Enea Silvio Piccolomini, who went on to become Pope Pius II. Most of the historical-artistic treasures of the town can be found in the square dedicated to his memory.
Siena, 80 km
This city needs no introductions, given that it is universally known for its very particular historical centre, dominated by the Torre del Mangia in the famous Piazza del Campo, which also hosts the legendary Palio di Siena.
Firenze, 120 km
The cradle of the Italian Renaissance is not that far from us. Make the most of your opportunity to see Brunelleschi’s Cupola or Giotto’s Campanile. If you are aiming to do some high-quality Made in Italy shopping, keep in mind that the Tuscan luxury outlet The Mall is also located near Florence.
The nearby region of Umbria
Don’t forget that Chianciano Terme is also near to the border with the region of Umbria. For example, Lake Trasimeno is just 25 km away, while only 55 km away is Orvieto, a city more than worthy of a visit, not just due to its fascinating Saint Patrick’s Well. Other landmarks that are fully worth visiting are Perugia, 70 km from Chianciano Terme, or the unmissable Assisi, 90 km away, the reference point for millions of pilgrims.
Naturally, there are many other towns worth visiting in the area, such as Cortona, Cetona, Chiusi, Sarteano and more. Don’t hesitate to contact us for any information or doubts!
Mountain bike trails
If you enjoy sport and an active open-air holiday, combine the wellness of the thermal baths with the pleasant emotions of bicycle trips between the Val d’Orcia and the Valdichiana. Cycling in the world-famous landscape of Tuscany is truly delightful.
For example, try the new Val di Chiana reclamation trail, 60 km long and completely flat, suitable also for couples or families.
Among the other most beloved cycling trails of the Valdichiana, it’s worth mentioning the one from Chiusi to San Casciano dei Bagni and the Mount Cetona trail.
Ideas for families
If you are on holiday with your kids, don’t forget some nearby landmarks which could enrich your days in the area:
