What you can expect
Escape the hustle and bustle of Rome with a day trip to picturesque Tuscany. With travel and sightseeing all arranged, you can experience the region’s famed wine, food and traditional hill towns all in one day – and resume your vacation refreshed by the country air.
A comfortable, air-conditioned coach will pick you up in Rome. As you leave the city behind for rolling hills, your expert, English-speaking tour leader will fill you in on Tuscany’s rich culture and answer any questions you might have about the tour.
First is a walking tour of Montepulciano hill town, led by a local, expert guide, taking in an ancient but still functioning wine cellar and ruins that pre-date Rome.
Next is St. Biagio's Church! This picturesque temple rests below the town, right at the point where the Val D’Orcia fades into the Val di Chiana, in the midst of an breath-taking landscape overlooking the Tuscan hills. The classic-styled church, with its travertine façade that shines in the sun light, is a 16th-century Renaissance masterpiece with exquisite decorations inside.
Just a short drive away is the highlight of any trip to Tuscany: lunch! In the wine cellar of an authentic vineyard farmhouse, you’ll enjoy a 3-course meal with wine pairings – including the famous Brunello di Montalcino.
You can buy souvenir wine here or wait for the final stop: the picturesque town of Pienza. Your tour leader will offer advice on the way here, but once you arrive it’s up to you how to spend your time: shopping for pecorino cheese and other local specialties, finding the perfect photo opportunity, or simply walking the streets like a local.
Then it’s back to Rome in comfort – fulfilled, relaxed and ready for the next day.
