Be ready for a hard workout hiking in these hills. Originally we heard about 10-12 km but we found out about 15-16 km because we included Montechiello. Our friend drove us to the starting point in Pienza and we followed a route in a novel Bob purchased back home. Walking and Eating in Tuscany and Umbria. James Lasdun & Pia Davis. Pages 291-296' hikr time is 3-4 hours. We ate at a small restaurant in Montechiello and drank a 750 ml of beer which was not heavy in the belly but heavy in the price (45 Euros) for 4. They have a smaller bottle available. The food (pici, salad with tuna and an omelette were enough of a boost to finish the hike for the remainder 2 hours. We asked our server if there was a bus that could take us to Montepulciano and she replied with "only on Thursdays". It was Tuesday. Have a good pair of hiking boots and a strong heart. Your heart will be challenged and plenty of water. Your body will be sore unless you are a seasoned hiker, runner etc.
