Description

The Orcia Valle or Val D`Orcia located in South Eastern Tuscany is an area of Tuscany very infrequently visited by tourists, although it is one of Italy`s most beautiful landscapes to behold and we highly recommend if you have the time that you discover this area for it is a landscape un-like any other with a rich cultural and gastronomic heritage. 
 
On this tour we enjoy fine wines, the rich landscape and the towns of Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino.
 
Pienza is a rare example of a Renaissance town, created by the Pope "Pio II" in the 15th. Century, which still represents the search of realizing a perfect model of life, enjoying beautiful panoramas over looking the Orcia valley from the walking terrace. Pienza is world famous also for its "Pecorino" Cheese.
 
Montepulciano, designed by Sangallo for the Cosimo the I in the 16th. Century, has streets and alleys lined by imposing palaces and churces. The main square is "Piazza Grande", a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance buildings. Montepulciano has become well known for its wines, the Nobile di Montepulciano.
 
Ancient documents concerning this wine go back to the 800's.
 
We will visit a few cellars on our tour and have the opportunity to sample local flavours.

Client Testimonials

This company really knows their stuff and recommended our family to stay longer in each location. We didn't listen to them, but wished we had in every single place we went. They recommended Sestri Levante over the Cinque Terre which was our favourite destination on our entire trip. We visited Rome where we stayed in the outstanding Hotel Locorno where they know the owner there, like in every place we went. It made a difference in Italy when they knew who had arranged our trip, like they gave us special treatment or something.

We are planning on going back to Italy in 2020 and definitely having the IVS team organize everything!
