TUSCANY: VAL D'ORCIA and CRETE SENESI - 3 days private photo tour in Wonderland



  • The Val d'Orcia and the Crete Senesi area are among the most famous and wonderful locations of the entire Italian landscape.

    We are at the end of spring, the colors of flowers and nature are at their best… and the nights are embellished by the Milky Way, which in this season rises at “human” times and can be admired for long hours.
    Namaa Travel Photography offers you an intense landscape photography workshop reserved for a small group of passionate photographers accompanied by Fausto Meini, our Tuscan landscape photographer NPS (Nikon Professional Services), who will show you the wonders of his "homegarden".
    From San Quirico's "cipressetti", to Vitaleta's Chapel, to Baccoleno farm ... not to mention the thousand stops along the way, each of which offers cover photos ... 3 days to fully enjoy a unique panorama, take pictures, learn and have fun together safely.

    All our trips will always be carried out in safety and in compliance with the Health Regulations in force.
    (see specific warnings and cancellation policy in the dedicated section)


  • The workshop takes place in a fairly small area. The proposed chronological program could therefore undergo reversals due to weather conditions or particular light situations, guaranteeing in every way the shots in all the locations indicated.
