Know More about this tour

Heading north out of Rome by luxury coach, your Tuscany day trip first takes you to Montepulciano, famous for its vino and views! Nestled in southern Tuscany, Montelpulciano is a Renaissance hill-town, famed for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a red wine. With your guide, take a walking tour and see the Florentine-style clock tower, the Etruscan city walls, medieval wine cellars and the interestingly unfinished Duomo.

After a stop for photos, get back on your coach to travel west into the heart of Tuscany, to the area surrounding Montalcino. Here you'll visit the gorgeous Sant' Antimo Abbey, where the stone walls ring with the sound of Gregorian chants, before admiring the views over the town's vineyards.

The rich Brunello di Montepulciano red wine is produced at these vineyards, and you'll sample a glass over a three-course lunch at one of the area's traditional farms! Featuring produce grown on the farm, your lunch allows you to dine in true Tuscan style before enjoying a wine tasting of each of the wines grown on site.

Spend part of your afternoon in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Pienza, where you'll have approximately 45 minutes to explore at your leisure. The town's layout was designed by Pope Pius II in the 14th century, as he wanted to transform the look of his birthplace. As you explore independently, soak up the serene ambience that stays true to the Pope's vision, and marvel at the town’s beautiful ancient architecture. Be sure to look in the shops for Pienza's most famous product – Pecorino cheese!

As your day comes to an end, meet your guide back at the coach for the relaxing return journey to Rome.

  • We had a wonderful day in Tuscany!! Our guide was informative and shared good info I can not remember his name but was Australian
    Everything went as planned. I have visited the area before and wanted my husband to experience it. Perfect!

  • This tour was a LOT better than I thought it would be. The stop in Montepulciano was excellent. Michael Michele in Italian? was a great local guide. It's very steep in the town so please wear comfortable shoes. Stopping at the Abbey in Montalcino was a great opportunity for photos of the historic site and the Tuscan countryside. The lunch was nice as well. There is a LOT of wine and it is good. Visiting Pienza was a treat. not only are the views of Tuscany amazing from behind the main church but browsing the little shops was so much fun. I believe our guide's name was Chiara and she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable telling us ALL about wine in Italy.

  • Very nice day excursion from Rome if you're looking for something different other than going to Florence. The towns are beautiful and charming. Our tour guide Pete was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Thank you Pete for the Da Francisco recommendation! The only negative was the lunch was more of a snack compared to other tours we've taken and we were a little crowded as another group was there at the same time. Would also liked to have tasted more of the yummy wines! Overall, would highly recommend!

  • Absolutely a wonderful tour! The tour leader was wonderful along with our bus driver. It was perfect for only having a day to explore Tuscany. The wine tasting and meal were delicious! The two towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino were lovely. Walking through them and learning the history was interesting and beautiful. I really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to anyone who wants and introduction to this area. I definitely want to go back and explore more!

  • The day exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide was informative and enthusiastic throughout the trip. The stops in Tuscany provided plenty of photo ops, especially in the towns. The lunch was also amazing. Highly recommend this one day tour for those looking for a day trip while in Rome.

  • Kara was simply amazing. Thoughtful and caring and looked out for us from the beginning to the very end!
    It would have been great if there were more time in Montepulciano. Otherwise, a perfect day :

  • Wonderful friendly and knowledge tour guide

  • What a wonderful excursion. Would highly recommend it. Have been to most places, on own previously, but with theViator professional guide at the helm it made the experience all that much better. Here knowledge, humor, presentation and tips where beyond expectations. What made it memorable was the guide spending time with each member/couple personally. She made the trip very personable, as if we were the only ones on the bus, then on to the next couple. Was great.

  • This is a wonderful tour - A very nice overview of the Tuscany area. Its a long day on the bus with a lot of twists and turns, but there is a lot too see. The guides and driver were very knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. This tour is a must if you are looking for a great day tour in Tuscany.

  • This tour is the culmination of my recent trip to Rome. Our tour guide is so knowledgeable about the history of Rome. Tuscany is the place to go if you are overwhelmed with the tourist in the City. One of the stop is in Montepulciano which my husband and I enjoyed most inspite of the hilly climb on the cobbled streets of Montepulciano. We also enjoyed the cheese tasting in Pienza. Our tour bus broke down after our lunch at a winery but our tour guide Kylie was so quick in taking care of the problem. This tour is highly recommended.
