After arriving in the hilltop town of Montepulciano and having a cappuccino to get us charged, we laced up our hiking boots and went on a country walk from this town to Pienza, about 14 kilometers away. I say a “country walk” rather than a “hike” because it is an easy trail on mixed terrain which begins on an asphalt road on the outskirts of Montepulciano. We started our walk from the very famous and harmonious Renaissance sanctuary of San Biagio by Antonio da Sangallo, continuing on a dirt road through the protected area of the Orcia Valley. We even brought little Alessandro, who quite enjoyed the day in a borrowed off-road stroller and later on took in the views from atop my friends' shoulders.
