Cheese producer and Val d’Orcia

Cheese producer and Orcia Valley

Enjoy some of the best cheeses in the area while surrounded by an amazing landscape

Friday from 3 pm to 8.30 pm

Walking difficulty: easy

This workshop is for anyone who wants to get his hands in the real countryside life. After some practice of street photography in Pienza we will be visiting a traditional cheesemaker nearby. There you will be able to photograph goats, sheep, peacocks, dogs and many other animals in the wild. Furthermore, in the evening, the producer himself will be in the stall milking the goats by hand. Then we will have a well presented plate of cheeses produced in the organic farm, while sitting in a veranda with a magnificent view on Val d’Orcia. We will finish the day doing landscape photography in a beautiful road in the countryside near Pienza.

150€ per person
