Full description
Enjoy a day of culture, wine, and food as you visit some of the most impressive towns and villages in Tuscany. Go to the picturesque town of Pienza, and taste world-famous wines produced in Montalcino and Montepulciano. Meet your guide in Siena and join the rest of the group to start your full-day tour. Depart Siena and transfer to a wine cellar in Montalcino. Cross gently rolling hills full of vineyards, and then sample local wines served with a delicious snack of the local produce. Continue to Pienza to discover the “Touchstone of Renaissance Urbanism.” Considered an artistic jewel of the landscape of Val d’Orcia, Pienza is a perfect combination of architectural beauty and harmony. Most of the lanes bearing impressive names overlook the breathtaking landscape of the Val d’Orcia. Unique smells and flavors are entwined with this natural and artistic heritage. Pienza’s most renowned tradition is pecorino cheese. End the tour at Montepulciano, where the stateliness of its Renaissance buildings and the refined beauty of the town's churches mix with the ancient tradition of wine making. Enjoy some free time before your return transfer to Siena by bus.

    At september 14 morning the bus pick up us (was late like 30min, they arrived from Florance, i guess the traffic was crazy) Had a wonderful day with our tour guides- she was soooo informative and spoke 3languages- first stip Montalcino. Drinking wine, had a little.... little! snack. Than heading to Pienza. Try some pecorino there,goes around the town(we had like 40-50 minutes) :( and travelling to our last stop to Montepulciano. Over all, trip was fine, good weather, nice wines (take food with you or prepare yoursef to eat quick at these towns’ reastaurants) Thanks for everything!

    The tour is an all day activity taking you through a wine tasting with Brunello, and then it takes you to the towns of Montalcino, Pienza & Montepulciano. Our Guide Alberto, was nice & knew all the facts etc about all the places. There’s no food included, so make sure you take a sandwich or some fruit in case you will extra peckish. There are however plenty of places in the 3 towns to grab a bite! I would defs recommend this tour!

    Guides Alberto and Claudia were great. The winery was fun and seeing the three medieval towns was worth it. We also enjoyed the guided tram ride history lesson which was not an advertised option. We knew from other reviews that this wasn’t really as much a food tour as a culture tour. Liked learning about Pope Pius and the Tuscan history. We loved meeting the other people on the tour as well. Only downside was the bus was really hot.
