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.

Renaissance takes come to life

Great trip - a relaxing family experience to taste wine and food from a farm started by Franciscan monks in the 16th century! Great stories. Lots of walking in Montepulciano and Pienza to enter into Renaissance lore and see old tales come to life. Full day! Lots of great memories. I wish the lively guide was more organized with info of things we saw on the way to our destinations. He was funny. I would have preferred more input thank personal banter. My adolescent kids loved him.

Francesco was an amazing guide! Antonio was a great driver. The trip was worth it for the food alone! We were happy we worse walking shoes, as there's a decent walk in this trip, but worth it for the awesome views. Would definitely recommend to family and friends who are traveling to Rome and want to see Tuscany.

Too long, but nice
Foster_M
, Jul 2022
The lunch and wine tasting were very good, both food and wine! Nice to have family touch and explanation of both! However, stopped at a church and had no entry, too many commercial stops for shopping. Could have been 1 1/2 hour shorter. Given the fact that the bus was the most uncomfortable ever that I ever was on!

This trip was very full of interesting history and fun! I was able to see the things I had only before read about in books. This is a long day of touring so bring solid walking shoes for the uphill roads of Montepulciano. Our guide, Claudia, was fun, interesting, silly and knowledgeable! ❤️

Simply an outstanding tour! Highly recommended! I would give it 10 stars if I could. Our tour guide Claudia was very passionate about her job and make sure we all had a great time. Montepulciano and Pienza are not to be missed! The food and wine at the restaurant were also excellent.

Take this tour!!! We take tours frequently and this was our favorite ever. We saw more and learned more than expected. It was easy to find our tour guide in the morning, the bus was comfortable, the bathroom/coffee stops were appreciated. The two towns we visited were beyond adorable. The highlight of the day was lunch on the working farm. Our hostesses were gracious and the food was perfect and the wine was exceptional. The whole day was on point. I'd like to give a big thanks to our tour guide, Peter.

The hill towns we visited were amazing, although climbing the streets of Montepulciano was a bit of a challenge in the hot sun. The wine tasting was fantastic, the food was delicious especially the sauce on the PIci (pasta) and the ladies who own the vineyard, Angela and Cecilia were wonderful hostesses. My family thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We would definitely do this tour again.

Had a great time visiting. Definitely a must see. Beautiful even while on the way there. Bring water and wear sunscreen cause it will be hot but definitely worth it. More than enough food is served at lunch and they give a good amount of wine. Andrea the tour guide was amazing. Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Tuscan history. He also helped me recover my wallet which I had left on a bus from a previous CityWonders Tour. I had nothing short of a great experience.
