Under the historical centers of the Valdichiana Senese there are very dense and complex underground tunnels where you can find precious treasures. Paths that trace, in negative, the beauty of the villages on the surface and that surprise visitors with their beauty. In fact, in Valdichiana Senese there is an entire underground world to be discovered in a cultural itinerary that allows you to understand more about the millenary history of this territory, retracing the phases that have marked its development.
Your tour will start with the Water Trail in Sinalunga. Equipped with a helmet with light and boots, like a true Indiana Jones, you will venture through the underground alleys that cross the historic center of Sinalunga together with a geologist who will introduce you to the history of this "spoil", an underground aqueduct built in medieval times when water was a real precious commodity. In fact, the tunnel connects an existing well in the center of the village to Fonte del Castagno, outside the entrance to the path. Later you will get married in Montepulciano, passing from water to wine, another element that has marked the economic development of this area. In the historic center you will visit one of the eight cellars dug into the tuff, where today, as centuries ago, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano rests, is kept (once you could say "protected", this was precisely the necessity to have cellars within the walls of the ancient castle) and is produced; you will appreciate it in a tasting guided by the cellar staff. At the end of the visit of the winery, a lunch with pici and Tuscan wine awaits you before moving to the Etruscan city of Chiusi, the last stop of the tour. Here you will be astonished by the wonder of the Underground City where you will find agricultural tools and equipment, an underground lake and a section dedicated to Etruscan epigraphy, unique in Italy, with 500 inscriptions on cinerary urns and tomb tiles.
