This stunning area lies to the southeast of Siena. A typical
picture of Le Crete would show undulating hills and deep narrow valleys
with steep sides. These clay hills transform like a chameleon from season to season changing from violet to green and then golden when the wheat is ready for harvest. The area is particularly
calm and tranquil, and it ideal for travelling around by bike or car. Even better if you are visiting Tuscany in the summer a trip and it offers a spectacular place to travel around by
bike or car. Or even better still, if you chance to be in Tuscany in
the summer a journey by Treno Natura is a great way to explore.
