Treno Natura 2020
event
From  27 Sep 2020  to  06 Dec 2020
Events return to the Siena countryside between September and December with lots of days out for nature and food lovers

TThe Treno Natura (Nature Train) return to the Siena countryside and the Val d’Orcia, a journey back in time by steam train and fully original period carriages. Climbing aboard an old Centoporte carriage is an exciting feeling as the train is driven by one of those dark clouds of smoke, in the same way that our grandparents travelled, accompanied by a soundtrack of whistles, puffs, grinding and the blowing of pistons.

Many unusual and irresistible routes are available with views that can’t often be seen from train windows. At certain points, there are no roads, just the train tracks, and all you can see are fields and flocks. Time comes to a halt and the Nature Train gives us the key.

These are day trips and are always combined with special events, food festivals and village festivals. You’ll be able to get off the train in romantic stations before venturing down trails to reach churches, castles and towns, stopping to taste local specialties at a farm and making the most of the chance to take part in food festivals.
