Overview
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.

  • Immerse yourself in Tuscany on a hassle-free day trip from Rome
  • Walking tour of Montepulciano and free time in UNESCO-listed Pienza

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.

We loved this tour! Though you do spend a great deal of time on the bus, there is so much beauty to see along the way. The winery we visited was beautiful and I was very happy to buy some delicious wine to take home.

We took this day trip from Rome to experience the beauty of Tuscany, and even in February, when the grapevines are brown and empty, and the fields have not greened up, the views are breathtaking, and the towns a joy to explore. Our guide, Anna, was a storehouse of knowledge of

Our tour guide was so amazing and funny. JOHN went above and beyond by not only describing the tour sites, but also gave us a very informative history of Rome and Italy! Tuscany was absolutely dreamy and picturesque. Montepulciano and Piena are veritable historical treasures.
