Description

Take a break from the chaos of Rome with a Tuscan holiday. Our tour will focus on the famous Val D’Orcia region, visiting the historic hill towns of Montepulciano, Pienza and the vineyards of Montalcino. We will explore winding streets, catch beautiful views of rolling hills from city walls, hear centuries-old Gregorian chants, stop at a typical Tuscan farm for lunch and have plenty of time left over for sampling world-famous foods and wine – all locally produced. If you have a taste for Tuscany but just a short time in Italy, this tour is for you! A comfortable air-conditioned bus collects us in Rome and by mid-morning we’re in the ancient Etruscan town of Montepulciano. We’ll tour the town’s most important sights from the exposed brick Duomo and the main square to Punch’s Tower. We’ll see ancient Etruscan wells and venture deep into medieval wine cellars still used today. We’ll have a bit of free time for photo ops before we’re back on the bus to our next stop, the vineyards of Montalcino! Our arrival in the area of Montalcino is perfectly timed to leave us Sant’Antimo Abbey where stone walls ring with the sound of Gregorian chants, performed here in the same way as they have been for centuries. Lose yourself in ancient rituals after taking some time to enjoy the view over some of Tuscany’s most beautiful vineyards. This is where Italy’s best wine, Brunello di Montalcino, is produced and we’ll have a chance to enjoy an exemplary bottle on the next leg of our journey and a sure highlight – lunch. The bus will take us out of town to a typical Tuscan farm where we will be wined and dined with the finest local produce. Devour three courses of regional dishes that surprise and delight, washed down with local wines. Lunch is followed by a professional guided wine tasting of the wines produced on site. Back on the bus your guide will prepare you for our next stop – Pienza. You will hear how this World Heritage site was conceived by Pope Pius II as a “utopian village” and get information on sites you may want to visit, such as the two Renaissance palaces and the beautiful Duomo. Pienza is a small town so we’ll split up here and take some time to wander alone, enjoying the serenity that is still true to the Pope’s vision today. Marvel at the ancient architecture, take in views of the rolling countryside beyond or get hopelessly, wonderfully lost in the town’s winding streets. You’ll be given a map so you’ll always be able to find yourself again. Whatever you choose to do, be sure to make time to sample Pienza’s most important product – pecorino cheese. With full bellies and bags packed with wine, cheese and pici pasta, we’ll meet back at the bus for a comfortable and scenic drive back to Rome. Take a well-deserved nap, watch the country fly past or spend the time planning your next visit to Tuscany – because one visit is never enough!

Client Testimonials

I am a travel agent from Lebanon and have organized several group tours as well as individual tours of Italy with Italy Vacation Specialists. I highly recommend them as one of the very best tour operators in Italy to work with, given their professionalism and work ethic which I feel is second-to-none in the travel industry. All of the staff, the guides, the coaches and even the meals we enjoyed were fantastic throughout the tour. Italy is a beautiful country, though we realize very complicated to work in and for this reason we were all very appreciative to the hard work we felt when into the services we received and personal service. No doubt, we will be returning to Italy many times again and definitely working with the IVS team!
