The first loop of the Botanic Garden of Fattoria di Maiano is a path full of panoramas and evocative places. The agricultural landscape of the farm is an attraction in itself even for the littlest ones, with its olive trees and free-range animals. Goats, horses, Limousines cows, Amiata donkeys, geese and hens live in the open air in natural harmony. Our guided tours will bring you in contact with the daily activities of the farm, to discover the experimental cultures and the organic footprint. Continuing towards the shade of oaks, cypresses and leafy holm oaks, you will reach the small lake Laghetto delle Colonne. The setting is dominated by the stone quarry used for the construction of the columns of Basilica di San Lorenzo. Casa del Tè, created for the guests of Sir John Temple Leader, completes the romantic setting. A spectacular landscape that changes between dense vegetation, imposing cliffs and magnificent views.
