Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Heading north out of Rome by luxury coach, your Tuscany day trip first takes you to Montepulciano, famous for its vino and views! Nestled in southern Tuscany, Montelpulciano is a Renaissance hill-town, famed for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a red wine. With your guide, take a walking tour and see the Florentine-style clock tower, the Etruscan city walls, medieval wine cellars and the interestingly unfinished Duomo.

After a stop for photos, get back on your coach to travel west into the heart of Tuscany, to the area surrounding Montalcino. Here you'll visit the gorgeous Sant' Antimo Abbey, where the stone walls ring with the sound of Gregorian chants, before admiring the views over the town's vineyards.

The rich Brunello di Montepulciano red wine is produced at these vineyards, and you'll sample a glass over a three-course lunch at one of the area's traditional farms! Featuring produce grown on the farm, your lunch allows you to dine in true Tuscan style before enjoying a wine tasting of each of the wines grown on site.

Spend part of your afternoon in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Pienza, where you'll have approximately 45 minutes to explore at your leisure. The town's layout was designed by Pope Pius II in the 14th century, as he wanted to transform the look of his birthplace. As you explore independently, soak up the serene ambience that stays true to the Pope's vision, and marvel at the town’s beautiful ancient architecture. Be sure to look in the shops for Pienza's most famous product – Pecorino cheese!

As your day comes to an end, meet your guide back at the coach for the relaxing return journey to Rome.

Excellent tour guide. Very personable and knowledgable. Wonderful tour. Lunch at the winery was a visual treat, but the food was only mediocre. I rate this trip and this guide very high.

This tour operator was a local tour company and has an overall rating of more than 4 stars. I wish viator had booked us on more of our tours with this company as opposed to the other company. The bus was comfortable and the time in each place was reasonable. The lunch and wine tasting was amazing. Definitely recommend.

It was fantastic! The weather could have been better, but everything else was great. The scenery, the tour guides, the wine, the food. Fantastic.

Great way to see Tuscany. Loved Montepulciano. The wine tasting was fun and in a really neat cellar. We also got to go to a church and hear the Monks do a Gregorian chant at midday. The whole trip was wonderful and I would highly recommend.
