Take the ‘one-day, sightseeing tour of Tuscany from Rome’ and be ready to discover the lovely Italian region with a local guide by your side.
Your Tuscany tour starts by traveling from Rome to Tuscany in a luxury coach. Traveling along the scenic road showing rolling hills, we will first stop at Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished facade, medieval wine cellars, and the old town walls.
From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy up to 45 minutes of free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienzas most prized product.
Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.
