  • Guided tour of Montepulciano

Depart from Rome

Your Tuscan adventure begins in Piazza del Popolo, where you’ll meet your welcoming, English-speaking tour guide along with the rest of your travel buddies for the day! Hop aboard your private, air-conditioned coach and get ready for an absolutely breathtaking drive. As you roll through Tuscany’s iconic hills, your tour guide will tell you all about the fascinating history and culture of the area.

Explore the Medieval Town of Montepulciano

Your first stop of the day is Montepulciano, a stunning hilltop town, famous for being car-free, which adds to its medieval allure. Here, you’ll meet a local guide who will take you on a walking tour through this medieval village. Follow your guide through charming narrow streets, impressive clock towers, and ancient wine cellars.

Finally, marvel at the impressive architecture of the Renaissance Church of St. Biagio, along with its stunning backdrop. The church is set against Tuscany’s rolling hills, making for a truly unique, and jaw-dropping view.

3-Course Meal and Wine Tasting in a Stunning Tuscan Vineyard

Now that you’ve worked up an appetite from exploring Montepulciano, it’s time to indulge in a decadent lunch! At a beautiful Tuscan winery overlooking its own vineyards, enjoy a traditional, 3-course meal, comprised of delicious, locally sourced products. Of course, your meal will be paired with fine local wine, including the internationally renowned Brunello di Montalcino, a specialty of the Tuscany region. Be sure to buy a signature bottle before heading to your last stop of the day!

Wander Through UNESCO World Heritage Village of Pienza

After savoring your delicious lunch and wine tasting, you still have one more stop on your dreamy Tuscan tour. The majestic, hilltop town of Pienza is your final stop of the day. This stunning village was entirely redesigned by Pope Pius in the 15th century and stood as a model for the Renaissance towns in Europe. Today, the town is famous for its jaw-dropping views and delicious Pecorino cheese.

During your free time in Pienza, you can enjoy a gelato while strolling through this charming village, shop for local foods and wine, or just take in the incredible, panoramic scenery. No matter how you decide to spend your time, be sure to take plenty of photos of this picturesque village before making the drive back to the Eternal City.

At first I didn't know if I should buy this trip because I thought the price was too high, however I gave it a chance and I don't regret it. This tour is incredible, you could never visit these places for a lower price on your own with the comfort that they offer you. The places are beautiful, the transportation is super comfortable, the food is super good. My guide was Sonia on December 24 and she made our trip wonderful.

I recommend it 100%, it was the best part of my trip to Rome.
