The Sienese Clay Hills are found to the south-east of Siena. This hilly, clay area - sometimes referred to as 'the Tuscan desert' - forms part of the municipalities of Asciano, Buonconvento, Monteroni d'Arbia, Rapolano Terme e S.Giovanni d'Asso.
Until 2.5 millions years ago the area was under the sea. When the water receded, irregular sediments of clay and sand,containing fossils emerged. The slow erosion process generated many coves called "calanchi" or "biancone" and small dome-shaped hills with a peculiar light colour. The ground has amazing colours and is so maleable that anyone passing over it leaves tracks.

Livestock paths, numerous vineyards, olive-groves, truffle-grounds, and lush forests with oaks, ilexes, broom and hawthorn can be seen here.
Travelling along the rural dirt roads,often located on hill ridges, seems like sailing among waves of earth and, when overlooked by an open sky and pushed by the wind, one feels very small.
This land is crossed by the ancient Via Cassia road and is part of the Francigena pilgrims' route. It is rich with old parish-churches, abbeys, and ancient farmhouses and thermal springs, as well as travertine quarries which gave birth to the famous local handicrafts.
