Experience

Highlights
  • Enjoy a traditional 3-course gourmet lunch with local wine pairings, seated in an authentic vineyard wine cellar
  • Listen to captivating commentary and history about this world-famous region
  • Find peace and stillness at Sant’Antimo Abbey — the perfect respite from the crowds and sounds of Rome
  • Relax with 45 minutes of free time in Pienza to seek out famous locally produced cheeses, wines, and balsamic vinegar
Full description
A comfortable, air-conditioned coach will pick you up in Rome. As you leave the city behind for rolling hills, your expert, English-speaking tour guide will fill you in on Tuscany’s rich culture and answer any questions you might have about the day ahead. 

First is a walking tour in the hill town of Montepulciano, led by a local expert guide, taking in an ancient but still-functioning wine cellar and ruins that pre-date Rome.

Next is Sant’Antimo Abbey, a masterpiece of medieval architecture nestled in a peaceful valley. Gregorian chants will swell all around as you explore the hushed, evocative scene.

Just a short drive away is the highlight of any trip to Tuscany: lunch. In the wine cellar of an authentic vineyard farmhouse, you’ll enjoy a 3-course meal with wine pairings — including the famous Brunello di Montalcino and varieties from the vineyard itself.

You can buy your souvenir Tuscan wine here or wait for the final stop: the picturesque town of Pienza. Your tour leader will offer advice on the way here, but once you arrive it’s up to you how to spend your time: shopping for pecorino cheese, balsamic vinegar, wines and other local specialties, finding the perfect photo opportunity, or simply wandering the streets like a local.

Then it’s back to Rome in air-conditioned comfort — fulfilled, relaxed and ready for the next day.
