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.

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

We had a very good tour guide named Andrea and driver Guisepi. The drive was very nice with beautiful countryside views. The two towns we stopped at were amazing especially if your a twilight fan! Had fantastic gelato! The food and wine experience were ok and that’s the only reason I’m giving it four stars.

Our guide, Laura, did a great job of explaining the history and current way of life for the Tuscany region. She injected personal experience into the story telling and was very open to answering question we had. The beauty of the region was the visual pleasure of the trip. Visiting the old towns in the area and getting to know why they existed was very satisfying. Also tying the locations along the way to some popular movies was an extra plus.

Lovely views in Tuscany, and some frustrations
Lynn_W
, Jun 2022
The Restaurant / winery was very cool. It was actually a 2 course lunch, with small pieces of biscotti after the entree. The tour definitely took us to some charming villages with beautiful overlooks. The local tour guides who met us in the little Tuscan village of Montepulciano were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The frustration was that we lost an hour of time we could have spent in Tuscany because of some decisions the tour guide made. First, despite all the warnings that the tour will leave you if you are late, the tour guide had us wait 30 min for one family of 3 that was not on time to the meeting place. I understand waiting 5 or 10 minutes, but 30 minutes is not fair to all those of us who got up really early and were on time. Then 20 minutes into the trip a couple on the bus asked to get off the bus, saying they changed their mind and didn't want to do the trip, before we had even left Rome. Rather than just drop them off to find their own ride back, the tour guide inconvenienced the whole group by making us all sit on the bus for 30 min at the side of the road while she called a cab and had us all wait until the cab arrived! The traffic jam getting out of Rome was no one's fault, but of course added again to the loss of time we actually got to spend in Tuscany, so that we were quite rushed at each stop. I wish the tour guide had respected the group's time better, as all the unnecessary waiting decreased the value of the trip for the majority who were on time and wanted to be there.

Our tour guide Emiliano was fantastic! He was funny and kept us entertained the whole time. He also had some great recommendations for us. The only thing is that we wish the description was more descriptive, it was longer and we did more than we expected based on the description.

Few things to note before you go
Sheldon_K
, Jun 2022
First off, note that this is NOT a wine tour. It is simply just a day tour around the Tuscany area ending by visiting a vineyard/farm/restaurant. If you keep this in mind, you will be satisfied with the trip. When we originally booked it, we didn’t read as much as we should have and was under the impression this was a wine tour. Other than that, our guide was helpful and it was a beautiful getaway from Rome.
