Discover the region
Historic hiking route
The Via Francigena is the ancient path that has connected Canterbury and Rome since the Middle Ages. Nowadays it remains a pilgrimage path, as part of the Way of Saint James (Camino de Santiago) but also presents a different way to discover Tuscany. Take a journey through time in close contact with the ancient surroundings and local shops. Ebbio is just 800 metres away from the starting point of the route from Monteriggioni to Siena; the route from Monteriggioni to San Gimignano starts just over 1 km away.
Region of Art and History
Lovers of history, culture, museums and art will be delighted with Ebbio’s location, less than an hour from the seven UNESCO heritage sites in Tuscany. Monteriggioni is within walking distance (1.8km), and the famously beautiful cities of Siena (15km) and Florence (45km) are easily reachable by car. The nearby medieval towns of San Gimignano (25km) and Volterra (40km) are like open-air museums, while Pisa and its Leaning Tower are located 100km away. Other gems of World Heritage in the area include San Galgano (39km) famous for the prophecy of the sword in the stone, Arezzo (85km) where there is a beautiful fresco by Piero della Francesca, Valdorcia (38km), Pienza (85km), and Colle Val d’Elsa (10km).
Wine paths and a Panoramic Drive
The rolling green hills of the Chianti Valley make for an enchanting road trip by car or Vespa. Wine and cheese tastings are offered in many of the properties along the Tuscan roads, and the journey is complemented by panoramic views of vineyards and fields of sunflowers. Castellina in Chianti (15km), Radda in Chianti (25km) and Greve in Chianti (34km) are all nearby, while longer trips take visitors to Montalcino (known for Brunello wine), Montepulciano (known for Nobile di Montepulciano) and Bolgheri (known for Sassicaia).
Tuscany’s volcanic geology has left it with the highest concentration of thermal springs in Italy. Nestled in green settings or antique settings, restorative waters can be found all around: nearby sites include Bagni Vignone, (40km) a medieval village built around a pool with a natural hot spring, Rapolano Terme (45km), and Bagni San Filippo (80km).
