Art in Tuscany and Montalcino

After breakfast we will start our journey through the Tuscan art with a tour of  Daniel Spoerri's garden.

This sculpture garden is modern art at its finest and most organic. It was founded by Daniel Spoerri in 1991 and includes works by more than 40 national and internationally renowned contemporary artists.

Swiss artist Daniel Spoerri is perhaps best know for his Eat Art Gallery in Dusseldorf, and the artist dedicated much of his career exploring sculpture art through non conventional mediums.

Stone sculptures of men, animals and other figures are almost hidden between olive groves and chestnut trees, and the effect is astounding. Spoerri deliberately wanted to weave botany and art together to demonstrate that the two forms are inseparable.

At the end of our visit, we’ll have lunch in the restaurant of the Garden.

After lunch we’ll continue with a visit to the town of Montalcino, famous for its magnificent view over the Tuscan countryside and its wine, the “Brunello di Montalcino”!

It is an experiment carried out by the University of Firenze and has given excellent results.

Return to the hotel near Cortona and overnight.

San Galgano and Siena

After breakfast and check out, we will leave for San Galgano.

About forty kilometers (25 miles) south-east of Siena towards Grosseto in an isolated valley among Siena's hills, lies an antique Medieval Cistercense Abbey, now desecrated and partly in ruins.

About ten minute walking up the hill of Montesiepi there is a small, circular chapel where one of the most fascinating and mysterious relics of the entire region of Tuscany is kept: the sword in the stone of Saint Galgano. A jagged piece of rock protrudes from the center of the tile floor of the chapel and in it lies the famous sword. The cross-shaped sword has been proven to date back to 1170. In the chapel there are even some frescos from the 1300's which depict the chapel itself. The sight, to say the least, is evocative and immediately brings to mind the well-known legend of King Arthur and his sword in the stone.

We will then continue towards the medieval town of Siena where you will have lunch on your own.

In the afternoon you will enjoy guided tour of Siena with its narrow picturesque streets. During this walking tour you’ll learn more about the town’s history and admire the most remarkable monuments
