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.

  • Wonderful day! So relaxing.

  • Absolutely breathtaking scenery, wonderful lunch with excellent wine pairings. Kylie was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour of Tuscany - a nice break from the crowds of Rome.

  • We loved the Tuscany in one day tour. The only negative was we did not have enough time in Montepulciano. This was such a beautiful place that we would of loved to explore more, and be able to do some shopping. I would honestly like to of skipped Pienza and stayed in Montepulciano. Our tour guide was wonderful and we very much enjoyed lunch in Montalcino.

  • Both my husband and I thought this trip was definitely not worth it. You stop in a few small towns and they give you an hour or so in each but there isn't much to see. Each town had only a handful of shops and a church. This was a long day mostly on the bus and definitely a wasted trip. Do not recommend this tour. We were both really disappointed.

  • Excellent tour. Went to many places in a short time.

  • Thoroughly enjoyable day out with a wonderful lunch at a lovely vineyard. Our delightful guide Becky provided us with comprehensive knowledge of the history and culture of picturesque Tuscany, which we thoroughly enjoyed hearing about.This is a special day out which I would recommend to anyone wanting a day away from Rome.

  • Excellent tour. A fastastic day with xcellent knowledgable guides.
