Description

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 holiday 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 Sant’Antimo Abbey, a masterpiece of mediaeval architecture nestled in a peaceful valley. Gregorian chants will swell all around as you explore the hushed, evocative scene.

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 specialities, 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.

Anna, our guide, was outstanding!! Very knowledgeable and kind. Despite the rain in the morning, she helped make it a great experience by the end of the day.

Visiting the town of Montepulciano was wonderful. Although this time of year with the Christmas Market on display 20 minutes is not enough time to shop. Need to change that. Andrea our tour guide was exceptional providing us the historical background of the area.
