About this tour

Your day begins when our coach picks you up in Rome. As you drive toward Tuscany, you will enjoy the wonderful sights of rolling hills and the horizon as far as the eye can see. Your knowledgeable guide will tell you about the rich Tuscany culture and answer any questions you may have.

Your day has a lot of activities lined up. You will start with a walking tour of Montepulciano. It is such a delight exploring the hill town. This town has abundant wine cellars and ruins which pre-date Rome. Your next stop will be the 16th-century Renaissance church in San Biagio. The fantastic decorations and flooding sunlight inside will fill you with awe.

After a morning spent exploring, a sumptuous Tuscan lunch awaits. As you sit in an authentic vineyard farmhouse, you will enjoy a 3-course meal with fantastic wine pairings. The wines include the celebrated Brunello di Montalcino as well as varieties from the local vineyard.

Enjoy a leisurely afternoon walk around the shops and buy the souvenirs that will remind you of your wonderful day in Tuscany. You can buy wines, pecorino cheese, or balsamic vinegar. You can also stop to capture that moment in a photo to show to your friends and family back home. If you don’t find the wine you are looking for, there is still one more stop in Pienza. After a delightful day and as the evening begins to set in, our guide will take you back to Rome.
