Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

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, whose stone walls resonate with Gregorian chants, 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 up to 45 minutes of 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.

The Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour was absolutely amazing. I had no idea we could cover so much ground in one day. The visits to the old cities and the winery were even better than I had expected. As I was on Rome in business for just a few days, this was an excellent way to get out of the city, meet other travelers and have an absolutely amazing day. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour was everything I hoped for and more. Our guide Kylie was fanstastic - she gave us a lot of Roman history with engaging stories but also knew when we were tired and wanted to sleep. We stopped at the coolest cheese and wine cafe on the way there that was full of free samples with a coffee shop at the end. The actual tour through Tuscany was absolutely gorgeous and so was the lunch. The waitresses were generous if you asked for more wine and the wine cellar was the perfect setting to enjoy an Italian lunch with five different wines.

This was our first day in Italy and it was the best way to spend your first day. The most comfiest ride on a spacious bus where the guide kindly allowed us to snooze along the way, and whispered gently to provide us with more information when it was time to get up and sightsee. The guide was so thoughtful and also a world of knowledge - showing her love of history and arts and being able to answer any questions we had along the way. The lunch served was absolutely special and the wine tasting topped it off. I will always relive this memory of the beautiful lunch and the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany!
