 Monticiano: Town infomation

 


The village of Monticiano rises in Siena's province, in Tuscany, south west of the city, where the metalliferous hills meet the first Maremma's woods and offers nature lovers an uncontaminated environment rich in flora and fauna, variegated by waters and paths, by singular geological sites, architectural monuments and art treasures to unveil, away from the usual tourist routes; a strong sense of its history and of its traditions of labour, culture and recreation all in constant touch with a natural heritage that is harsh and wild and for this reason unique. 

For those that enjoy excursions in nature's solemn silence there is no better place than the Monticiano territory, which includes the villages of "Iesa", "San Lorenzo a Merse", "Tocchi", "Scalvaia", "Bagni di Petriolo" , "Il Santo" and offers a series of forest courses ideal for excursions on foot, on bike and horse back, crossing marvellous woods of chestnut trees and turkey oaks, cork trees, ferns and strawberry trees, but also extremely rare plant species like the yew and the beech. Along the rivers Farma and Merse and the numerous streams that flow silently between valleys and rocks it is not unusual to come face to face with otters, or alpine newts, or to be able to spot the Fario trout or the rare river prawn. In Monticiano guided tours are organized through the naturalistic paths and all the necessary tourist information for visiting the area is provided.
