Imagine cruising down the winding streets of Tuscany in a comfortable air-conditioned bus catching a glimpse of the lush hillside that envelops the city. You then find yourself relaxing at a typical Tuscan farm gobbling up an elaborate three course meal cooked with the city’s finest produce and sipping on some of their top notch wine. The sights and sounds of this quaint little town take you into a different world where you can finally catch a short break from the grind of your daily schedule. Sound appealing? If so then this is the perfect tour for you!
Departing from the city of Rome, our adventure begins at the ancient Etruscan town of Montepulciano where you will have the amazing opportunity to view the town’s most significant sights. From the main square to the Punch’s Clock Tower, the Etruscan wells to the medieval wine cellars, this place will gradually reveal to you its charming history.
Subsequently, we will venture out into the vineyards of Montalcino where the gorgeous view and mesmerizing Gregorian chants are only a small contributing portion of what make up the town’s magical ambiance. Here you can learn about some of the ancient rituals and see where Italy’s finest wine, Brunello di Montalcino, is produced. You’ll even have the sweet opportunity of sampling some at our next stop!
Of course, no vacation is ever complete without food and drink! The bus will then escort us out of town into a classic Tuscan farm where the highlight of the day will commence: a 3-course lunch accompanied by a bottle of Italy’s best wine. Following this wining and dining experience will be a professionally guided wine tasting in the local vineyards. We’ve all heard the buzz on how exquisite Italian wine is, now it’s time to feel the buzz.
Our last stop will be at the Pienza. Here we will have the chance to explore this “utopian village” by ourselves, bask in the town’s serenity, meander across the winding cobbled streets, and truly understand the place’s unique personality.
Finally we will get back onto the bus and take a scenic ride back to Rome where the tour will conclude. Here’s to having a fantastic day under the Tuscan sun. Cheers!
