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.

  • Worried initially about a 12-13 hr tour, yet the coach was very comfortable and the driver and guide were excellent.

    The winery was fantastic, as was the on-site lunch.
    The sights were unforgettable.

  • We took this trip yesterday it was a long and hot day! lots of walking up hills. Informative tour but the food was on the table when we got to winery was sweating and with flies on it very poor presentation. staff arogant, driver Antonio and guide Ciara great! Dissapointed

  • So glad we made time for this tour! The scenery, the food, the wine... just magnificent!! It's a long day but well worth it!

  • WOW! This tour was amazing. The guides Anna and Claudia were a knowledgeable, personal, funny, and helpful dynamic duo. The trip says its 3 hrs both ways, but with an intermittent pit stop of trying various cheeses, chocolates, wine, and olive oils the time flew by. The wine tasting was in a perfectly quiet Tuscan setting, with an amazing 3 course meal and wine to die for. FYI, the wine is so good here and is SO much cheaper to buy at the winery than in the states I suggest bringing it home. The guides don't just know the history, the know the towns, the wine industry, and helpful FAQs asked by tourists. Not only is there a wine tasting, but we traveled to 3 other locations in Tuscany and were precisely on time. This is a must do if you are in Italy, 100 the highlight of our 10 day trip.

  • What a wonderful experience! Highly recommend!

  • Wonderful Tour. Our guide was very informative on cultural and common sense tips in the Tuscany area. We did wine tasting, and then went to a couple villages where our tour guide arranged for a cheese tasting at a local store. Another part I enjoyed was the stop at this store that literally had tons of sampling of olive oils, desserts. meats and cheeses, and dips. I fell in love with the truffles, and had hard a time getting everything into my suitcase on the flight home!

  • Andy was a wonderful guide. He provided lots of information about the history of the region, as well as the history of Italy in general. He included many interesting facts in his narration and also provided very helpful information for visiting Rome.

  • The guide was funny, the stops were great. The trolley bus was horrible. It literally felt like you were riding a horse at a Gallup for hours. It made several of us experience sea sickness on land. The A/C on the bus did not work right which amplified the swaying bus. That made for a miserable trip.

  • My husband and I loved this tour! Thank you Becky and Claudia for being our guides. You two made the tour entrancing and enjoyable! Great value if you want to escape the crowds and hot weather of Rome for a day!

    This tour full met our expectations.

  • Amazing views of tuscan landscapes, interesting history that shaped the whole region, and great wine!
