Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome
If you have time for just one side trip from Rome, make it Tuscany. Leave the transportation and logistics to someone else on this guided exploration of the Val d’Orcia region. You can simply relax and enjoy a walking tour of Montepulciano, a stop at Sant’Antimo Abbey, along with free time to stroll and shop in UNESCO-listed Pienza. Fuel up with an included 3-course lunch and wine tasting.
What to Expect
Board an air-conditioned coach in central Rome, and journey into the rolling countryside of Tuscany’s Val d’Orcia region.

Stop first at Montepulciano, a 15th-century hill town famed for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano red wine. Hear about its wine heritage on a walking tour, seeing highlights such as the clock tower, cathedral, and town walls.

Next, venture into the area around Montalcino. Visit Sant’Antimo Abbey and gaze across the vineyards as you hear how their grapes are used in Brunello di Montepulciano wine. Head to a farm and enjoy a glass of Brunello with a 3-course lunch. Other select local wines are also available.

Next up is Pienza, one of Tuscany’s UNESCO-listed treasures. Here, spend your free time exploring the historical center, designed by Pope Pius II in the mid-1400s. If you’re a foodie, hit the shops to buy Pienza’s coveted pecorino cheese.

Your Tuscany tour then finishes with a drop-off in Rome.

I must say, I absolutely loved the trip! Of course there was no way to see all of Tuscany in one day, but it was certainly an excellent sample. Our guide, Andy, was very knowledgeable and injected plenty of humour in his narration. Combined with...More

No, but you do stop about an hour into the trip and then get to Montepulciano shortly after that.

well we would like to have shopped in Montepulciano our first stop but told to put on our blindfolds. Scheduling I guess. But looked like a great place to shop. Given about 45 minutes in Pienza but not ad much to buy there.
