Things to do
-Cuisine. The Siena area has some distinctive dishes, including Ribollita, a vegetable soup served with bread rubbed with garlic, and pici, thick spaghetti served with meat sauce. Rumour has it that tiramisu was invented a few kilometres away in Siena, while a number of Italy’s best-known wines are produced close by, including Chianti and its varieties.
-Local culture. With its many stone buildings, Trequanda’s appearance has changed very little since the middle ages. One of the most imposing features is the fortress, which sits on high ground at the entrance to the old-town. There are also 11 historic churches to seek out, as well as a three-story tower belonging to a mill from the 1700s.
-Nature. The undulating scenery of the Val di Chiana is ideal for experiencing on foot via a number of paths in the area. The Italian Touring Club, a cycling organisation, has awarded the town the Orange Flag, in recognition of both its preserved history and picturesque natural scenery that includes olive groves and cattle farms.
-Siena. Siena has to be top of the list of places to visit if you’re on holiday in Trequanda. It’s about 50 kilometres west and commonly held as Italy’s most beautiful medieval city, full of beautiful art and spectacular buildings. Must-sees include the Palazzo Publico, which is 800s years old and has an interior with stunning medieval frescoes.
-Chiusure. Chiusure is a small town a few minutes west of Trequanda, and it’s best known for the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, which is situated close by. It’s a monastery that is still active to this day, and has some fantastic art, like the fresco by Luca Signorelli, who taught Michelangelo.
