Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Florence and experience the heart of Tuscany on this day trip from Florence. Ride in a spacious and air-conditioned van to the lush Val D’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Stop at wineries, stroll through local towns, and savor local cheese. Hop aboard the comfortable bus at a centrally-located meeting point in Florence. Relax on the drive through the Tuscan countryside on the way to Montalcino. Try some world-renowned Brunello wine and stroll through the cellars and museum of a wine estate. Hear about the history of this estate which once belonged to the powerful Piccolomini family, whose members included Pope Pius II. Move up to the peak of the town for views of rolling hills, ancient oaks, picturesque olive groves, vineyards, and cypress trees. Continue to Pienza, which stands high upon a hill and dominates the Orcia valley with extraordinary views. Explore the charming streets of this small town at your leisure. Head to Montepulciano, home to the famous Vino Nobile vineyards where some of the vampire movie 'New Moon' was shot. Sip on some wine while visiting the dungeon where the wine is stored under the ancient walls of the winery. Sample some Pecorino cheese and finally return by bus to Florence.
