Tuscany Autumn Photo Tour

21-27 October 2017

South of Siena lies the Orcia valley where we will be based in a beautiful hotel for 6 nights. October is the perfect time to photograph the landscape as the leaves on the trees and the vines change colour. The valleys often fill with mist in the morning creating magical, ethereal scenes. The rows of cypress trees and old stone houses that sit on top of the hills look magnificent in the soft, golden light.

We’ll photograph the exquisite architecture of Pienza, Montepulciano and San Quirco as well as the vineyards of Montalcino and San’Antimo. A short drive to the North are San Gimignano and  Siena, famous for their exceptional medieval architecture and soaring towers.

The sun sets early in October, so we’ll have plenty of time to relax after a full day of photography and enjoy the delicious local food and wine.

We also welcome non-photogrpahic partners on this tour- Gilly will be with us throughout to organise visits to local villages, walks, cooking courses and wine tasting in a local vineyard.
