Full description

A comfortable, air-conditioned coach will pick you up in Rome. As you drive towards rolling hills, your expert tour guide will explain Tuscany’s rich culture and answer any questions you might have about the day ahead. 

First, enjoy a walking tour in the hill town of Montepulciano. Take in an ancient but still-functioning wine cellar and ruins that pre-date Rome. Next visit San Biagio, a 16th-century Renaissance church with a travertine facade welcoming in the sunlight and exquisite decorations inside.

Just a short drive away awaits a delicious Tuscan lunch. Enjoy a 3-course meal with wine pairings in the wine cellar of an authentic vineyard farmhouse, including the famous Brunello di Montalcino and varieties from the vineyard itself. 

Buy your souvenir Tuscan wine here or wait for the final stop: Pienza. Your tour leader will offer insights, but your time is yours: shopping for pecorino cheese, balsamic vinegar, wines, and other local specialties, finding the right photo opportunity, or simply wandering the streets like a local.

Next, return to Rome in air-conditioned comfort — fulfilled, relaxed, and ready for the next day.

I found the tour to Tuscany brilliant. Even though it is a 13 hour round trip, you spending most of the time visiting lovely sites or eating and drinking the local produce. Lots of opportunity to buy local produce as well! The tour guide was exceptionally good, kept an even flow to the day with lots of laughs and interesting facts about Italy in general as well as the local history. Would definitely recommend it!

What an amazing trip! I ended up so so happy. Everything perfect. I have been living in Rome for two months so this was the perfect getaway from the city. Very nice tour guides, good food and wine with also amazing people working there… I would recommend this trip so much if you are thinking about taking it. And lastly I traveled alone and as a woman not only did I felt really safe but also it was amazing to meet other people and there were also other alone travelers :). Also excellent english.

Great experience in Tuscany. The guides Andrea and Andrea were truly memorable. The driver Andrea too! We loved this excursion in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. A visit rich in beautiful landscapes, history and great explanations from the guides. Regarding the food it was simple but good, the family does everything from A to Z so even if it's not excellent food, it's good, the wines are appreciable. It's a great experience to do if you stay a few days in Italy!
