What to expect

Take a break from the Italian capital and its chaotic streets to go on a one day Tuscan holiday. This tour will focus on the famous Val d’Orcia region, giving you the chance to visit historical villages like Montepulciano, Pienza and the rolling vineyards of Montalcino. You’ll explore the winding streets and soak in views of the Tuscan hills and countryside as it spreads out before you. You’ll hear old Gregorian chants and stop for lunch at a typical Tuscan farm, leaving plenty of time to sample world-famous foods and wine, all produced locally. If you are only spending a short time in Italy, but really want to experience Tuscany, this tour is the one for you.

You'll leave Rome behind and set off to the Etruscan town of Montepulciano where you'll enjoy a tour of the town's most important sights. Visit ancient Etruscan wells and discover the medieval wine cellars still used today before hopping back on the bus to Montalcino. You'll be dropped off at Sant'Antimo Abbey where stone walls ring with the songs of Gregorian monks as they sing traditional chants that have existed for centuries. Then it's time to enjoy incredible views of Tuscany's most beautiful vineyards where Brunello di Montalcino, one of the country’s finest wines, is made.

Next up on this itinerary is lunch at a typical Tuscan farm where you'll enjoy a three course meal with the finest local foods and wines. It's the perfect chance to discover some regional delicacies with local wines. Then you'll enjoy a professional guided tasting of the wines produced on site.

Back on the bus, you'll head off to Pienza where you'll see the sights and get an insight into the history of this 'utopian village'. If you have time, remember to sample Pienza's most famous product, pecorino cheese!
