What to expect

A day amid art, culture, wine and delicious food. Do you fancy an unforgettable experience in the most impressive places in Tuscany? Join this tour and visit wonderful cities, taste the best wines, cheeses and typical products in one single day.

The tour begins with a visit of a cellar in Montalcino where you will taste a sampling of wines produced with a delicious snack consisting of local products. In the afternoon, a tour leader will show you around Montalcino, where you will visit the typical village and its fortress.

Then you will visit Pienza and Montepulciano, two artistic jewels, representing the landscape of Val d’Orcia. Pienza is a perfect combination of architectural beauty and harmony. Most of the numerous lanes bearing impressive names overlook the breathtaking landscape of Val d’Orcia. Unique tastes, smells and flavors support this natural and artistic heritage. Pienza’s most renowned tradition is, in fact, the typical Pecorino cheese.

The tour ends with the visit to Montepulciano where the stateliness of its Renaissance buildings and the refined beauty of its churches are intertwined with the ancient tradition of its wine, Nobile di Montepulciano, the symbol of the city as well as a delight for the palate. You will taste it in a local winery.
