Pass By: City Wonders, Imlil Imlil, 00100 Rome Italy

Location

Stop At: Abbazia di Sant'Antimo, Localita' S. Antimo, 222, 53024 Castelnuovo dell'Abate, Montalcino Italy

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.


Duration: 5 hours

Stop At: Piazza Pio II, Pienza Italy

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy up to 45 minutes of 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.

Duration: 1 hour

Such a cool tour for both one-timers to Italy and those interested in exploring the countryside. It offered new places that I would definitely want to go back to for a full stay.

This is a wonderful tour. Our tour guide, Antonina, was so patient and delightful. She gave us a lot of information and was very delightful to have with us. Also, our tour guide in Tuscany (don't recall her name) was exuberant and kept us at a good pace; we were able to take pictures and didn't feel rushed. The sisters at the farm restaurant where we ate and did the wine tasting were great! Plenty of food and the wine was excellent of course.
