Overview

Travel to Tuscany on a day trip from Rome, and discover a region of stunning hilltop towns, farms, and wineries. With a guide, you’ll visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pienza, a beautiful example of a Tuscan hill town. Continue to an organic farm for lunch, sourced straight from the field, then climb the lookout towers at nearby Montalcino. Finish on a high note with a wine tasting at a prestigious winery, then return to Rome. Numbers are limited to just 15 people for a small-group experience. 

  • Day trip to Tuscany from Piazza della Repubblica in Rome
  • Explore the shops of Pienza, a UNESCO-listed hill town
  • Visit an organic working farm in the Val d’Orcia region
  • Satisfy your appetite with lunch, produced by the farm
  • Climb the towers of the castle at Montalcino
  • Sip on several prized wines at a Tuscan wine estate

Start your tour at 7am at Rome’s Piazza della Repubblica. With a guide, you’ll travel north to Tuscany, a region known for its beautiful hill towns. Stop in one of them, the UNESCO-listed hilltop village of Pienza, and explore its streets and ceramics shops with your guide. Browse delis for gourmet treats to take home, and get an intro to Tuscan specialities, such as pecorino and wild boar, from your guide.

Your next stop is at a family-owned farm in the Val d’Orcia area, which specializes in organic produce. Tour the farm, chat to the cheese maker, then take a seat for lunch. Tuck into a feast of farm-to-fork food, and finish with a tasting of sheep and goat cheese with homemade honey and jam. Local wine is served as you eat and chat with the farm owners — all while soaking up the views. 

With your appetite sated, you’ll continue to the hill town of Montalcino. Use a special admission ticket to head up the lookout tower and take photos from the top.

To end your day, travel onward to an acclaimed winery for a tour of the vineyards and its cellars. Sample a selection of the region’s finest wine, and purchase a bottle to take home, if you like.

Relax on the journey back to Rome, and finish with a drop-off at the start point.

First of all, our guide Alessandra made this such a fun and memorable day. I couldn't have imagined this day without her knowledge of the region and her passion for Italy and of course, Tuscany and wine. Beautiful countryside, quaint towns filled with lovely people, and the food. OH THE FOOD! AND THE WINE!! One of the most memorable lunches I have ever had and probably will ever have. Thank you for this amazing tour!

This day could not have been better. We had the most helpful and experienced tour guide. The travel by small Mercedes bus (15 max) was comfortable and allowed great views of the countryside. Visits to a small mountain town, a working farm with an amazing lunch, and authenic wine tasting was simply awesome. If you have the opportunity, book this one! I would do it again!

I usually shy away from these package tours, but on a trip to Rome with my mother, she specifically requested a day in Tuscany. This trip was a pleasant surprisewhile we hit some touristy things, we also were able to experience the true Tuscan countryside at lunch and at the wine tasting and even the touristy stops were so enjoyable and beautifulits clear why everyone wants to go there!. It was a beautiful day filled with delicious food, good people, and beautiful sights. Our guide, Marta, was amazing! So knowledgeable but never condescending. She hasnt just memorized a script for this jobshe truly knows what shes talking about. It greatly enhances the quality of the tour. Lastly, the pace of the tour was perfect. Not rushed at all. And the size of our group was perfect! Not too big, not too small. 100 would recommend this tour!

My wife and I are in Rome on honeymoon, we have taken several day trips from Rome and consider this one to be the best one yet. Our guide Andrea was great, he did everything he could to make it a great experience.

Tuscany is amazing, and while it was a bit of a drive, it was well worth it. The time in Pienza was wonderful, and the lunch at the farm was truly an experience of a lifetime. The wine tasting was intimate and informative. I highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I didn't know what to expect with our Tuscany Wine tour, but we were so impressed and, frankly, giddy about how much fun we were having. Our tour guide was excellent! Chiara was her name and she spoke fluent English and Italian. The tour took us to two additional small villages to walk around in and another town to climb up into a 12th century fortress! We added cheese, olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting with one of the stops. Who knew there were so many crazy local varieties? I highly recommend this tour, especially if you love wine like we do!

We enjoyed this full day trip very much! It was relaxing. We were a small group which was nice. Our bus trip to Tuscany was pleasant and our tour guideChiara was very informative and pointed out many sights along the way. Stopping at an organic farm where we had lunch was excellent! The food was very fresh and tasty! Wine was good as well! Just prior to lunch we stopped at Pienza and very nice,picturesque village where we sample some home made cheesesyummy. We had some free time to look around the shops and enjoy the surrounding countryside! I would have like about another half hour here instead of the long visit at the farm just shorten the farm visit by 1/2 hr!. We carried on and visited an old stone castle again enjoyed the beautiful views then onto a winery were we did some more wine drinking! A lovely day away from the hustle and bustle of Rome!

This is a must do trip. It was wonderful from beginning to end. Our guide was excellent. Had lots of time in the towns to explore and enjoy. The farm visit was exceptional with a stellar lunch served. The winery trip to the Mozart winery was amazing and most enjoyable.
