In fact, each itinerary on the nature train is combined with fairs, festivals, exhibitions and markets where you can taste great seasonal and local produce.
Enjoy a spectacular steam train journey through the countryside south of Siena along an old rail line, which until now has been closed for more than 20 years.
The Nature Train is a classic steam train pulled by a smoking locomotive with authentic 100-door carriages from a bygone age. Travelling through the evocative landscape of this part of Tuscany – the Crete Senese – is characterized by farmland, clay hills, abandoned castles, hamlets and small churches, where time seems to have stood still. The excursions last the whole day, and after the departure and a journey of about 120 kilometres through the enchanting Tuscan landscape, the train reaches a village where a feast, fair, market or other events devoted to typical products of the region. The thrill and emotion of travelling on an authentic steam train, with the whistles, puffs, squeaks and the pumping of the pistons makes this a great experience for adults, an unforgettable day for children!
