Walks from Pienza


New member
Hi, community!

I'm a young woman planning to visit the Val d'Orcia in early/mid-June, sans car. I will be based in Pienza for three nights and would love to walk around the countryside/to other towns. A few questions:

1) Would anyone have detailed walking routes from Pienza (especially the Pienza Ring Walk and Pienza to Montepulciano)? I am looking for walks that will last a few hours (no more than 3-4 hours) one-way.

I've tried looking at Google Maps and the book Walking and Eating in Tuscany and Umbria, but Maps is showing me highways to walk along (unpleasant), and the book was last updated more than 10 years ago, so it's unclear whether the routes still hold.

2) Would anyone have any recommended walks with Pienza as the base? Besides the two listed above.

Thank you!
