A unique experience in Tuscany: steam trains

We had never thought that the experience with the Treno Natura could be so fantastic. On one side it was the funny feeling of travelling in this lovely steam train, that  really takes you back in time. Then the pleasure to enjoy the view from the Train windows: beautiful vistas, fields, flocks of sheep.
 Perspectives which can be enjoyed only from the train.

During the journey, we had the possibility to detrain at romantic stations, venture to visit lovely little towns, castles,  stop at a farm and take part in feasts and festivals.

Here we name Treno Natura leaving from Siena but visiting their website you’ll find  other trains leaving from other towns and later in  Fall/Autumn.
