Activities

A new adventure in every season and every direction

Head out from Belmond Castello di Casole and find endless things to do in Siena, Italy, and the surrounding hill towns. Spring and summer in Tuscany are full of green grass and flowers in bloom, perfect for biking or Vespa rides to the hill towns. Autumn is just as magical thanks to olive and grape harvests. Hunt for truffles and mushrooms, set off on winter winery tours, and uncover the region’s history. Every season promises magical memories.
