Join me for a fabulous Tuscany photography tour in the Val d’Orcia region of Italy. Capture the magical light and misty sunrises that this idyllic region is famous for, along with other lesser known locations. The tour is centred near Pienza in the very heart of the Tuscan landscape, in a farmhouse overlooking Pienza which we will use as our base to photograph the impossible undulating landscape. The very thought of Tuscany creates images of rolling hills, misty mornings and roads punctuated with cypress trees and these will be a feature of many of our Tuscany landscapes.
During May, this UNESCO World Heritage Site bursts into colour with wildflowers filling the countryside and we will endeavour to make the very best of the morning and evening light. I will take you to some of the very best photography locations and also lead you to explore lesser-known spots, so you can capture a wide array of classic imagery, from breathtaking landscapes to lifestyle, close-up and even flower photography.
Our stay is based in an agriturismo farmhouse, which is itself in the heart of the Val d’Orcia. Our hosts provide us with a superb breakfast in the morning.
Highlights of our photography tour, other than the endless rolling countryside, will be the hilltop towns of Montepulciano, Pienza and San Quirico d’Orcia as well as other smaller off the tourist trail gems.
