Tuscan Train Ride
Visitors to Tuscany can now enjoy one of the most beautiful train rides in the world.
Tuscany’s Nature Train, which runs along the Asciano – Monte Antico lines in the Val D’Orcia and Amiata Valley, is a steam train that runs through the countryside south of Siena along an old rail line closed to traffic more than 20 years ago. The railway has recently reopened so tourists and Italians alike can appreciate its high environmental and landscape value.
Riders on Tuscany’s Nature Train can get off at different stations along the way and venture along trails, explore churches, villages and castles. The train ride can be combined with sports activities such as hiking and cycling. Guests also have the opportunity to taste local food and wine products, as each itinerary on the Nature Train is combined with fairs, festivals and farmer’s markets. Schedules for this year’s rides are available at www.ferrovieturistiche.it/en.
