Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome
From US$ 149.46
Overview
If you have time for just one side trip from Rome, make it Tuscany. Leave the transportation and logistics to someone else on this guided exploration of the Val d’Orcia region. You can simply relax and enjoy a walking tour of Montepulciano, a stop at Sant’Antimo Abbey, along with free time to stroll and shop in UNESCO-listed Pienza. Fuel up with an included 3-course lunch and wine tasting.
What to Expect
Board an air-conditioned coach in central Rome, and journey into the rolling countryside of Tuscany’s Val d’Orcia region.

Stop first at Montepulciano, a 15th-century hill town famed for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano red wine. Hear about its wine heritage on a walking tour, seeing highlights such as the clock tower, cathedral, and town walls.

Next, venture into the area around Montalcino. Visit Sant’Antimo Abbey and gaze across the vineyards as you hear how their grapes are used in Brunello di Montepulciano wine. Head to a farm and enjoy a glass of Brunello with a 3-course lunch. Other select local wines are also available.

Next up is Pienza, one of Tuscany’s UNESCO-listed treasures. Here, spend your free time exploring the historical center, designed by Pope Pius II in the mid-1400s. If you’re a foodie, hit the shops to buy Pienza’s coveted pecorino cheese.

Your Tuscany tour then finishes with a drop-off in Rome.

Beautiful

Being able to see the countryside was absolutely breath-taking. It is everything you see in the photos and movies and what people rave about. It was nice to get out of Rome for a day. Montepulciano was definitely my favourite. I just wish we had...More

A quick taste

Alex the tour guide was terrific. Full of helpful information and an encyclopedia on the history of Italy. The bus driver was marvelous, the luncheon at the winery superb.

Incredible!!

It was an amazing trip! Gorgeous weather, breath taking views and an awesome tour guide (Andy). I highly recommend this trip, you'll walk a little bit but when you get in the bus you get to rest.

well we would like to have shopped in Montepulciano our first stop but told to put on our blindfolds. Scheduling I guess. But looked like a great place to shop. Given about 45 minutes in Pienza but not ad much to buy there.
