Lovers of art, culture, wine and delicious food will be in their element on this excursion, where you'll get to visit some of the most impressive towns in Tuscany with the help of a local guide.
You'll begin with a visit to Montalcino, a medieval town built in the 13th century and known for its Brunello di Montalcino wine. Take a tour of a wine cellar and enjoy a glass of this popular red, while soaking up the views of the picturesque Val d’Orica Natural Park that surroundings this hilltop town. Visit the town’s fortress, known as Rocca, to enjoy the spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside – you can see out to the Gothic skyline of Siena on a clear day.
Next, you'll visit Pienza and Montepulciano, two Tuscan gems full of Renaissance architecture and magnificent churches. In Pienza, you can try some delicious Percorino cheese, which the town is famous for, pairing it with wine tasting at a local winery in Montepulciano.
