Nature Train: dive into the past, among romantic stations, villages and hills

treno natura

In the sienese countryside you can go back in time, traveling on a real vintage train with steam locomotive. A trip aboard the Nature Train is a unique and unforgettable experience for slow travelers. Many itineraries of great beauty and charm along railway lines now disused and only viable with the Nature Train. This experience will allow you to discover the Crete Senesi, Val d’Orcia and Mount Amiata from a very original perspective. A rich program, in which each experience is linked to a village festival, a historical re-enactment or a special event in the territory.

You can travel through the Val d’Orcia and the Crete Senesi and stop in romantic stations to visit villages and castles, you can stop in a farm for a tasting or participate in a village festival. A journey into the past in an original carriage with a real steam locomotive whistling and snorting.

The Nature Train will take you to discover unusual and inaccessible itineraries, including history, tradition, food and wine excellences of the Terre di Siena. The Nature Train is a project dedicated to slow travel and environmentally friendly, suitable for everyone, also much loved by children.

Most of the events are organized during the most important food and wine events of the territory (Siena, Abbadia San Salvatore, Asciano, Buonconvento, Castiglione d’Orcia, Chiusi, Montalcino, Murlo, San Giovanni d’Asso, San Quirico d’Orcia, Trequanda). Every appointment with the Nature Train lasts a whole day. Places are limited and reservations are required.
