Sovana:
the forgotten tombs

Get ready to be thrilled!
Join me on a 6km trek that will depart from the the city of Sovana (the most important Etruscan city in the area) to look for a series of late Etruscan tombs hidden and unknown to most. These tombs were often so many to form a real city which is why they are known as Necropolis. These tombs and their Vie Cave are in less crowded areas, but their beauty and charm are second to none. Be ready to witness the magnificence of a Via Cava, a canyon carved by human hands. Feel the vibes when you dive in it, and then try to imagine the tremendous effort made by the Etruscan people to dig these man-made canyons. Upon return there is the possibility to have a wine tasting from local winery.

MEETING POINT: Centro Storico di Sovana Via del Duomo, 37/1, 58010 Sovana (GR). The guide will wear a black backpack and trekking gears, together with an official badge

 

ATTENTION: the price of the experience does not include the tasting that can be paid on site to the owner.

Pitigliano in the footsteps of Etruscan:

Join me for a once-in-a-lifetime hike, followed by a wine, cheese, and cured meat tasting with a local and fully licensed guide.
We will walk in the footsteps of the Etruscans, the ancient people who inhabited the ancient lands of Marrema, immersing ourselves in the Vie Cave (ancient streets dug into the tufaceous rock that reaches a depth of 25 meters) and following a circular route of about 6 km (3.7 miles.) Experience the secret walkways, caves, and tombs of these people who dug the paths to connect with the Necropolises, also known as the ancient cities of the dead. The tour will end with a visit to a private historic cellar (featured in National Geographic) with a wine tasting and sampling of local cured meats and cheeses. The entire excursion will be an experiential journey that will involve the 5 senses, allowing you to experience and savor all the history and uniqueness of a territory.

The via Clodia:
from Etruscan to Lombards

A trek that will engage all 5 senses, oscillating from history to the taste of ancient wine, making this journey a unique sensory experience. Starting from the La Biagiola winery, we’ll follow a route that passes through the ancient Via Clodia (a Roman road used to connect the coasts of Etruria with the Via Cassia) and winds through a sunken road, then rediscovering some of the hidden Etruscan tombs. On the way back, we’ll find the remains of a Roman villa where wine was already produced, and where the Lombards later created a cemetery. The tour will conclude with a return to La Biagiola and a tasting of local wines and Km 0 products.
