See the very best of Tuscany on a full-day trip from Rome! Traveling to the stunning Val d'Orcia region, south of Siena, you'll be introduced to a beautiful landscape where medieval towns cling to sunny hills and rustic farms adorn the countryside. With an expert guide, you'll visit Montelpulciano, Montalcino and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pienza, sampling fine wines and local delicacies as you go!

Highlights

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Lunch included
  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Get inside tips from a local
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
Heading north out of Rome by luxury coach, your Tuscany day trip first takes you to Montepulciano, famous for its vino and views! Nestled in southern Tuscany, Montelpulciano is a Renaissance hill-town, famed for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a red wine. With your guide, take a walking tour and see the Florentine-style clock tower, the Etruscan city walls, medieval wine cellars and the interestingly unfinished Duomo.

After a stop for photos, get back on your coach to travel west into the heart of Tuscany, to the area surrounding Montalcino. Here you'll visit the gorgeous Sant' Antimo Abbey, where the stone walls ring with the sound of Gregorian chants, before admiring the views over the town's vineyards.

The rich Brunello di Montepulciano red wine is produced at these vineyards, and you'll sample a glass over a three-course lunch at one of the area's traditional farms! Featuring produce grown on the farm, your lunch allows you to dine in true Tuscan style before enjoying a wine tasting of each of the wines grown on site.

Spend part of your afternoon in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Pienza, where you'll have approximately 45 minutes to explore at your leisure. The town's layout was designed by Pope Pius II in the 14th century, as he wanted to transform the look of his birthplace. As you explore independently, soak up the serene ambience that stays true to the Pope's vision, and marvel at the town’s beautiful ancient architecture. Be sure to look in the shops for Pienza's most famous product – Pecorino cheese!

As your day comes to an end, meet your guide back at the coach for the relaxing return journey to Rome.

Amazing experience we would highly recommend to anyone who will listen! Our guide Pete was fantastic. Best tour guide either of us have ever had. Pete is from the US so speaks English well, but is Italian and extremely knowledgeable. Tuscany is absolutely breathtaking and if you have a limited amount of time while in Rome, this tour is well worth the money and the time. A few items we thought would be helpful to know ahead of time: 1 the bus has no restroom, however 2 the bus stops in a shop in Umbria about 1.5 hours from Rome where you can stretch your legs, use the restroom, and sample truffles, cheeses, meats, wines, limoncello, olive oils, vinegar, cookies, candy, etc. 3 You will only drink wine during lunch and you get 4 small samples i.e. 6 bottles were shared among 25 people, so don't expect a buzz!
