Crete Senesi: art and devotion – half-day

People would pay hundreds of thousands dollars to see the Moon with their own eyes, but actually it’s not so far away: the Crete Senesi, the so-called “Accona desert”, would be such an amazing surprise. The tour will take you to the road to Monte Oliveto Maggiore with its futuristic landscape, to a Medieval abbey, and then to Asciano, where you will try typical local products.

What you will see

People would pay hundreds of thousands dollars to see the Moon with their own eyes, but actually it’s not so far away: the Crete Senesi, the so-called “Accona desert”, would be such an amazing surprise. The road to Monte Oliveto Maggiore, the old Lauretana, follows each curve and hill of this clayey and dry landscape (it’s impossibile not to take pictures!), till the final destination of a Medieval abbey, surrounded by cypresses and full of Renaissance frescoes and art masterpieces, where monks still live and pray under the Benedectine Rule. A stop is absolutely necessary to visit the centre of Crete Senesi, Asciano, where you will have a nice degustation of typical local products in a cosy shop along the main street.
