Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Florence and embark on an exploration of the Tuscan countryside.

Stop at two splendid wineries, wander through medieval towns, and sample the typical products of this enchanted place. Meet your tour leader in the heart of Florence and board your comfortable grand tour coach. Relax as you journey through the gentle Tuscan hills en route to Montalcino. Here, you'll have the opportunity to taste the world-famous Brunello di Montalcino wine at a small but characteristic local winery. Enjoy your free time exploring Montalcino, climb to the top of the town to admire the splendid pentagonal fortress. From there, you'll have the chance to contemplate the picturesque landscape characteristic of this valley: the gentle hills, ancient oaks, picturesque olive groves, vineyards, and cypress trees.

Get lost in the characteristic alleyways of Pienza and take time to observe the lively shops full of typical local products. The last stop of this wonderful tour will be Montepulciano, home to the famous vineyards of Vino Nobile, and known to many for being the location where a scene from the vampire movie 'New Moon' was filmed. Here too, you'll have the opportunity to visit a splendid historic winery.
