At times, the best way to be close, is to listen and stay in silence. Perhaps immersing yourself in the sounds of nature, with the wind as the only voice, could bring you closer to your travelling and life companion. The Crete Senesi gives lovers endless opportunity and moments to do this: you could dedicate an entire day to taking photos and photographing each other, from dawn to dusk, between different landmarks.
The sweetness and poetic nature of the hills could suffice, but there are at least two other magical places that need to be considered. In the midst of the olive groves of Asciano, rises the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, a monastery where silence is key. Inside are beautiful frescoes and other artistic decorations. Another dreamlike place which offers plenty of space to walk and fall in love again, is the Bosco di Ragnaia, a large garden of oak trees, where elegance reigns amid the water games and sculptures.
As the sun goes down, move towards Rapolano, with a heart ready for a day of doing nothing.
