If you are planning a trip to Tuscany (in Italy), one of the fantastic places to visit is the area of ”Colli Aretini“, “Colli Senesi” and “Valdambra“, and there you can choose to relax or do some activities in the surrounding zone.
You can base your visit to discover the flavors and aromas of this area, but there is also plenty to see.
Your camera will not stop shooting, including magnificent rolling hills filled with vineyards and olive groves, picturesque villages, the foods and wines that you may taste (because, let’s face it, you are going to eat and drink very well in Tuscany!).

For a walk, you may want to see Castelnuovo Berardenga, a small and charming medieval town in the province of Siena, where you can walk, admiring and photographing the small beauties of this country, or sit comfortably, drinking a glass of Chianti with pecorino (this town is in fact included in the Chianti wine-production area).
If you are passionate about wine, I recommend you take a trip to the winery “Cantina Villa A Sesta“, where you can ask to see where the wine is produced and do a tasting of their products, from “Chianti Classico” to the “Chianti Colli Aretini” and with different combinations of varieties, including “Sangiovese 100%” : taste it!
In the Chianti area you will find many wineries, so you should only stop to taste the wines if the place attracts you and remember that although some wines do not have the nomenclature of “Chianti Classico“, it does not mean that they are bad: you will be surprised by the quality!
If you want to relax a little bit, there are the baths of Rapolano.
You may want to visit the San Giovanni spa, in the countryside and very popular: the murky water that flows at 39 ° C is very rich in sulfur and calcium bicarbonate, a bit fragrant but with many beneficial effects on health.
Just finished the bath, you may lay under the sun in one of the many beds available and you will be able to tan a little!
If you instead want to do some outdoor activities, you can play polo at Villa a Sesta Polo Club or simply attend a free game, where teams from around the world compete in the tournament.
In this club you can also have the opportunity to ride a horse.
In the case you want to do something more exciting, you can make a quad ride: it could be a great experience!
Base of your weekend will be one of the beautiful hotels in Tuscany, as you can choose among a list of fantastic places to stay.
