Italian garden and Val d’Orcia

Italian Garden and Orcia Valley

An incredibly beautiful garden in the heart of the Orcia Valley

Wednesday from 2.40 pm to 8.20 pm

Walking difficulty: easy

In this workshop we will first go to Monticchiello, a fascinating medieval borgo not far from Montepulciano. Then you will discover an incredible Italian garden hidden in the heart of the Orcia Valley. We will go and photograph it at 5 pm as this is the time when the sun is in the perfect position as it will be hitting the trees and vegetation affecting the shadows in a way to create incredible geometries. Then, with the setting sun , we will move to some of the most iconic spots of Val d’Orcia, finding ourselves lost in the spectacular countryside between cypress trees and rolling hills.
