    What to Expect
    Start your tour at 7am at Rome’s Piazza della Repubblica. With a guide, you’ll travel north to Tuscany, a region known for its beautiful hill towns. Stop in one of them, the UNESCO-listed hilltop village of Pienza, and explore its streets and ceramics shops with your guide. Browse delis for gourmet treats to take home, and get an intro to Tuscan specialities, such as pecorino and wild boar, from your guide.
    Your next stop is at a family-owned farm in the Val d’Orcia area, which specializes in organic produce. Tour the farm, chat to the cheese maker, then take a seat for lunch. Tuck into a feast of farm-to-fork food, and finish with a tasting of sheep and goat cheese with homemade honey and jam. Local wine is served as you eat and chat with the farm owners — all while soaking up the views. 
    With your appetite sated, you’ll continue to the hill town of Montalcino. Use a special admission ticket to head up the lookout tower and take photos from the top.
    To end your day, travel onward to an acclaimed winery for a tour of the vineyards and its cellars. Sample a selection of the region’s finest wine, and purchase a bottle to take home, if you like.
    Relax on the journey back to Rome, and finish with a drop-off at the start point.

    We ended the tour at Innocenti vineyards. Regarding staying in Tuscany - I would recommend you ask the tour operator directly about that. It might be fine, or their insurance might require only the same drop off for the same... More

    Since we opted not to stop at rest area on way back I believe we were back in Rome around 7:30.
