This full-day private hiking tour and spa escape is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the unique and beautiful Tuscan countryside of the Crete Senesi (literally "Sienese clays"). It is the distinctive grey coloration of the clay-rich soil that gives the landscape an appearance often described as lunar, and the area's gently rolling hills are ideally suited for hiking.
You will meet your guide at the train station in Siena to board a regional train for the 30-minute ride to Asciano, a small town protected by 14th-century walls. Upon arrival, you will start your walk in the Crete Senesi. At a slow pace, you will be able to admire the stunning landscape and have time to take plenty of pictures while listening to the sounds of nature; after a three-hour hike, you'll reach the thermal baths of San Giovanni.
Here, at the spa restaurant, you will enjoy a three-course Tuscan lunch and then get to relax in one of the many thermal pools for the rest of the afternoon. The natural thermal spring waters filling the pools bubble up from their source at 39 degrees centigrade (102 degrees F) and are rich in sulphur and calcium bicarbonates. A gorgeous park with sweeping views of the gently rolling hills and distant golden fields surrounds the spa, adding to its beneficial effects on both body and soul.
