Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Rome with a day trip to picturesque Tuscany. With travel and sightseeing all arranged, you can experience the region’s famed wine, food and traditional hill towns all in one day – and resume your vacation refreshed by the country air.

A comfortable, air-conditioned coach will pick you up in Rome. As you leave the city behind for rolling hills, your expert, English-speaking tour leader will fill you in on Tuscany’s rich culture and answer any questions you might have about the tour.

First is a walking tour of Montepulciano hill town, led by a local, expert guide, taking in an ancient but still functioning wine cellar and ruins that pre-date Rome.

Next is Sant’Antimo Abbey, a masterpiece of medieval architecture nestled in a peaceful valley. Gregorian chants will swell all around as you explore the hushed, evocative scene.

Just a short drive away is the highlight of any trip to Tuscany: lunch! In the wine cellar of an authentic vineyard farmhouse, you’ll enjoy a 3-course meal with wine pairings – including the famous Brunello di Montalcino.

You can buy souvenir wine here or wait for the final stop: the picturesque town of Pienza. Your tour leader will offer advice on the way here, but once you arrive it’s up to you how to spend your time: shopping for pecorino cheese and other local specialties, finding the perfect photo opportunity, or simply walking the streets like a local.

Then it’s back to Rome in comfort – fulfilled, relaxed and ready for the next day.

I expected this to be the highlight of our stay and boy I couldn’t have been more wrong. The theme to the trip was hurry hurry. It felt like our very presence was an inconvenience for everyone. The guide kept apologizing saying He didn’t make the schedule and is just trying to make it work. The food at the venue was terrible, pasta wasn’t even fully cooked and we were rushed to get out of there, not to mention the staff was incredibly rude. The only reason I gave this a 2 star is because the view was nice even though we were only given minutes to look at it. At the church we were given 15 mins to walk to it, use the restroom and see the inside. It was a 5 min walk to it and the line in the restroom took 10. I guess we will see it the next time. The tour in the city it felt like we were running. We were given 5 mins to see the church. We were not allowed to shop or even stop for icecream. 80% of this tour was on the bus. Do not take this tour!
