Full description

Take a break from the chaos of Rome with a Tuscan holiday. The tour focuses on the famous Val D’Orcia region, visiting the historic hill towns of Montepulciano, Pienza and the vineyards of Montalcino.

Travel by comfortable air-conditioned car or minivan will collect you in Rome and by mid-morning, you will be in the ancient Etruscan town of Montepulciano. The next stop is at the vineyards of Montalcino. This is where one of Italy’s best wines, Brunello di Montalcino, is produced. Absorb views over some of Tuscany’s most beautiful vineyards before your private driver will take you out of town to a beautiful Tuscan vineyard. Stop at Pienza, with some free time for lunch. Get information on sites you may want to visit, such as the two Renaissance palaces and the beautiful Duomo. Pienza is a small town so you'll go off on your own and take some time to wander around, enjoying ancient architecture and views of the rolling countryside. Whatever you choose to do with your time, be sure to sample Pienza’s most important product, pecorino cheese, in one of the many artisan food stores around the town. With full bags packed with wine and cheese, meet back at the car for a comfortable and scenic drive back to Rome.

Our driver, Patrick, was fun and very attentive to our needs meeting high expectations from the age range within our small group. He took care to ensure we were well taken care of, sharing beautiful sites, and great recommendations to sit down and relax enjoying the tastes found in Tuscany. My teenage daughter was so excited Patrick went above and beyond to help her find the film sites from one of her favorite movies, Twilight. It was a fun adventure, peaceful, and we had a very lovely time. I strongly recommend anyone wanting an escape from the busy cities to escape on this tour to enjoy incredible scenery at a slower pace in Tuscany with Patrick. Thank you for such a wonderful time which ended our trip on a high note!

Patrick is, in a word, exquisite. We booked a tour starting at 8:30 am and he arrived promptly in a gorgeous Mercedes with croissants for the journey. Patrick deftly navigated the roads and all of our questions. He took us to an amazing local winery in Montepulciano and then made special accommodations to do a private tasting at a local vineyard. We also stopped at PIENZA, which is BY FAR the most gorgeous town we’ve seen in Tuscany. 10/10 day with Patrick would recommend to all!

Fantastico!!

Our driver ALESSANDRO was delightful...like being with an Italian friend you’ve known a long time. Even though we thought we wanted to do a ton he let us savor a few life changing experiences...one of the best days of our lives. The day in Sienna was magical, pizza next level (and I was a kid in NYC) and a wine tasting/tour that was phenomenal. Thanks for a great day!!
