Returns to original departure point
Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is 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 façade, medieval wine cellars, and the old town walls.

After a break for photos, travel further into Tuscany to explore the area around Montalcino. Step inside Sant’ Antimo Abbey, and then soak up the vistas that stretch beyond the vineyards.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy 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 Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

This was a great tour. Really enjoyed the tour guide, Chiara (pronounced like Kiara), and driver, Cesare who were both fantastic and enjoyable. Chiara was knowledgeable and fun. The stops on the tour were also enjoyable. The lunch at the winery was ok although small portions and expected more. Be prepared for long stretches on the bus… the bus ride back felt particularly long because it was dark and nothing to see out the window. Would recommend as a nice experience to get outside the busy city!

Amazing experience! Cost-benefit was really worth it compared to the other tours. You get to visit different towns along the way, have the wine tasting and lunch with the group, and learn more about the history of Italy throughout the day! Big thank you to our tour guide Emiliano and our great driver Franco!! Emiliano was very friendly and entertaining during all the tour, and thought us a lot about Italy. I highly recommend this tour, you will have amazing views of the Toscana!

Fantastic stops along the way, excellent guide. The only thing I could critique is that the meal could have been a bit more robust.

A great day trip to Tuscany. Our tour guide, Anna, was absolutely wonderful, with deep knowledge of the area and history of Tuscany and all of Italy. Giuseppe, our driver, was super as well - very kind and professional. The trip was a perfect mix of walking, scenery, wine, and education. Take this tour!

The Tour it self, guide John, and places they took us were fine, except lunch was Underwhelming. The host was very cold and we did not feel welcome by her. We had a better pasta elsewhere and the dessert was a clearly not homemade. She was also stingy on the wines (Less than 2 fingers) and she said “no” when I asked for second. Wines she sold at the shop were fine, but I'm sure there are equally great wines elsewhere for better experience. I wish I did not choose this tour.
