Holidays in Murlo

Murlo has an extensive territory, thinly populated and sitting astride the valleys of the rivers Merse, Arbia and Ombrone. It is a dream place where history, culture, wildlife and woods reign undisputed and where traditional economical activities are tied up with the earth and tourism.

Guests have a wide selection of hotels, farmhouses and a campsite to choose from (check out our interactive map below) as a base to go and discover the territory and its history, taking paths surrounded by uncontaminated nature to reach the numerous castles, villages and churches dotted over the area.

 

On foot, horseback, by bike …. paths of all kinds … suitable for families, seniors, experts and professionals. Some of these have become famous for local and international cycling races, which are repeated every year, attracting many fans from Tuscany, Italy and abroad.

Apart from the natural beauty and centuries-old history, Murlo is located very strategically for visiting the important historical and artistic Tuscan centres: 1 h from Florence and the coast, 30 minutes from Pienza, Montalcino, San Galgano, Chianti, and only 20 minutes by from Siena.
