Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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, 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 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.

Tempio di San Biagio

Ana, Marta, and Mario were incredible! The scenery was beautiful, the wine was delicious, and the views were stunning. Learned about a lot and made some new friends! Would recommend 100% If you get car sick easily, be sure to take something to help! The road to the winery is a bit bumpy and someone got car sick on the way up.

Enjoyable tour through picturesque Tuscany

This bus tour was nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of walking through Rome. What you may have seen or heard about the beauty of the Tuscan region does not compare to seeing it firsthand, especially the picturesque town of Montepulciano. Our guide, Anna, and driver, Antonio, were very informative tour and provided a safe trip.

Tuscany is absolutely beautiful, leaves you breathless! Andreas was a great guide that knew his history; he didn't just sit on the bus but spoke along the way noting key points. Very engaging.

Was every bit as beautiful as one would hope for.

A spectacular day spent with the lovely, Ana our guide. She was so knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed her company. The only letdown was the lunch, it wasn’t as good as what one would expect, the flavors were average and the antipasto was nothing special along with bread that didn’t seem all that fresh. The wine tasting was good. What would have just pushed the lunch up another level is sitting at the outside tables with the view looking over the Tuscan hills (instead of inside) All in it was still great. We stopped at quaint little towns and the whole experience is something I will always remember.

Even though it was a long day, the whole trip was really memorable. The lunch and the wine tasting at the Tuscan farm was probably our favorite part. Our tour guide was very informative and added a lot to the experience. We definitely recommend this tour.
