Il Tondo is a wood of holm oaks and cypresses planted in a circle on a hill near Montefollonico. It was commissioned midway through the last century by a nobleman from Siena, Marco Landucci, the owner of the land. Two rare species of orchids grow there and you can see the wildlife typically found in Tuscany (roe deer, badgers and wild boar). Three-toed skinks can also be commonly found in the area which are a cross between a snake and a lizard. The Vin Santo trail also starts from Montefollonico. This is a historic naturalistic trail that you can tackle on foot, horseback or by bike. The idea is to rediscover the rural landscape through the revival of age-old crafts. It is seven kilometres long and joins up with the rails that linked it to Torrita.
