Full description

Leave Rome's hustle and bustle behind and head to Tuscany for the day.

Enjoy a guided town of Montepulciano and eat a delicious 3-course lunch with an Italian wine-tasting experience you won't forget.

A comfortable, air-conditioned coach will pick you up in Rome. As you drive towards rolling hills, your expert tour guide will explain Tuscany’s rich culture and answer any questions you might have about the day ahead. 

First, enjoy a walking tour of the hill town of Montepulciano. Take in an ancient but still-functioning wine cellar and ruins that pre-date Rome. Next, visit San Biagio, a 16th-century Renaissance church with a travertine facade welcoming in the sunlight and exquisite decorations inside.

Just a short drive away awaits a delicious Tuscan lunch. Enjoy a 3-course meal with wine pairings in the wine cellar of an authentic vineyard farmhouse, including the famous Brunello di Montalcino and varieties from the vineyard itself. 

Buy your souvenir Tuscan wine here, or wait for the final stop: Pienza. Your tour leader will offer insights, but your time is yours: shopping for pecorino cheese, balsamic vinegar, wines, and other local specialties, finding the right photo opportunity, or simply wandering the streets like a local.

Next, return to Rome in air-conditioned comfort — fulfilled, relaxed, and ready for the next day.

A fantastic experience. My family and I enjoyed every single moment of the tour: The continuous and beautiful landscapes on the bus ride, the detailed and entertaining explanations of our amazing guide (grazie mille Andrea, sei bravissimo!), the marvelous walking tour in Montepulciano (what a gem in Toscana!), the delicious wine and food in Fattoria Pulcino, the breathtaking scenery in the temple of San Biagio, and (last but not least) the gorgeous streets and viewpoints in Pienza with a magical sunset as a golden ending of the day...simply one of the best experiences I've ever had. Thank you Andrea and all the people of City Wonders for this unforgettable trip! You're the greatest! Cheers from your Ecuadorian friends, the Baquerizo family :)

CityWonders did a fabulous job in organizing and coordinating this event. I say this because I booked a really crappy tour to Venice through viator/trip advisor, which turned out to be a rip-off, if not fraud! So, I have to say this particular tour to Tuscany that I bought through GetYourGuide, and conducted by CityWonders was a gem! The money paid for was well worth it. The Guide and driver, Anna and Giuseppe, were fabulous. I would recommend anyone to use these companies in Italy. You have to be careful with what you book/buy here locally because companies with good reputations such as viator/trip advisor use third-party local tour companies that rip people off! So, GetYourGuide and CityWonders get 5 ⭐️ for the Tuscany trip.

Overall this was a fantastic experience. The perfect experience if you want to get away from the busy city and still want to be surrounded by history and have a good meal. To go in more depth; the guide, Gabriel, was incredibly knowledgeable and obviously passionate. The individual guide in Montepulciano was the same. The stops were gorgeous, unique, and great for photo opportunities. The shopping was not only fun but vastly different from Rome, so make sure you bring money! The food was delicious, and they gave the history of each wine/food you received. The only note I have is to bring a portable charger and some headphones/book to bring on the bus. My battery drained fast, and the ride is long.
