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.

What a delightful trip this turned out to be!! In one day, we saw the beautiful Tuscany, a fabulous meal in a winery and sometime to shop as well. It is worth every penny. The Tour guide, Monica is so knowledgeable that she took the time we were on the bus to give us so much information that we are very thankful. I would advise everyone to take this wonderful trip.

Our tour guide Monica was wonderful. The Tuscany countryside was breathtaking. The history brought to life. Nothing like a little wine tasting to break the ice with your fellow travelers. For anyone needing a break from the bustle of the city, this is s tour not to be missed. Loved it.

This tour was everything I hoped it would be. We packed so much into the day and yet were not rushed. We got to see all of the best of Tuscany, enjoyed Montepulciano, had a wonderful wine tasting and lunch at a farmhouse and visited a lovely abbey. Peter was not only informative but also an engaging tour guide. Highly recommended!
