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

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
