This route features the breathtaking scenery of the Val d’Orcia region of Tuscany. Through the countryside with its green smooth hills, softly curved dirt roads and isolated cypress trees lining the horizon, ending at the Cappella di Vitaleta, a small chapel that is the subject of many postcards. Beyond the Pieve di Corsignano, you walk along the famous 'Gladiator Road'. This area was the exact setting of the breathtaking panoramic countryside scenes from Ridley Scott’s move, "Gladiator."
