Know More about this tour

Rolling hills and green valleys characterize the Orcia Valley, unique scenery of nature and picturesque villages, since 2004 recognized World Heritage Site by UNESCO, for the excellent state of preservation of the landscape.

After an introduction to the village ofBuonconventowe meet in Cassia Street on the way to the south, we will visit the Renaissance center of Pienza, defined the 'ideal city' for the harmonious combination of its architectural treasures. Pienza is a real art jewel, where you can walk among artisan laboratories and shops of local food products.

The richness and variety of the landscape, in fact, are not the only elements that characterize this territory; the food and wine production is one of the strengths of this area, known in particular for the Pecorino cheese that you will taste in a typical shop which which still produces following old recipes but using advanced techniques and equipment.

    Angela was an amazing tour guide. Her knowledge about wine really helped us understand Italy through this important lens. We also saw some amazing little towns along the way. She picked great spots was totally flexible when we had other ideas. Highly recommend!

    Thoroughly enjoyed the stop at Pienza and most especially the tour of the wine cellar in Montepulciano! We liked the wine so much we had some shipped home!

    My wife and two daughters went on this excellent excursion through the Tuscan hills to Pienza and Montepulciano. Our friendly and knowledgeable guide and driver Carolina picked us up at our hotel and took us through some beautiful countryside. Conversation was easy and she readily answered our questions about the places and things we were seeing. She gave us some history of Pienza and left us to explore the hilltop town at our own pace and choosing. Even though the weather was rainy off and on there were still good views and many interesting shops and buildings to explore. We finished with a snack and a glass of wine in a nice little cafe and then proceeded on to Montepulciano. Again more interesting views and then a tour and wine tasting at the Talosa winery. Excellent wine to be sure and the tour was informative and entertaining exploring the natural underground cellars and cave. I would highly recommend this tour for a fun and relaxing afternoon in the area around Siena and thanks again to Carolina.
