Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome
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.

I'm only giving this trip a 3+. I would have given it a 5 if it hadn't been for the mess up of the planned trip. Anyway, we met at the meeting place (Piazza de Popolo), did the cheese tasting and some other goodies at...More

You won't be walking too much on your visit to the 2 towns (Pienza and Montepulciano). However, in Montepulciano, there are a lot of steep streets that you will be walking through so not sure if that would be a problem.

Most definitely. It was quite warm last week. You will need cool clothing.

Hi, we traveled in a bus and I think there were between 30 and 40 people. On one of the stops we were divided into two smaller groups which made it very personal.
