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.

The tour guide was OUTSTANDING- ANNA-! She took time, was knowledgeable. She found everyone food they could eat! We saw a lot of Tuscany and knew what we had seen when we got back.

Absolutely fun and worth it! Our guide Andy of City Wonders did an amazing job of giving us a lot of information about everything Italian. Tuscany was beautiful and we were able to take wonderful pictures. Highly recommended!

We were on our honeymoon and were excited to visit Tuscany through City Wonders due to the reviews. We booked this because it is advertised as a small group 25-person tour. This is falsely advertised because our group was 54 people. The only “small group” portion is the first city where the group is broken in half. For lunch, the guide miscounted and we were short one vegetarian antipasti course. Luckily, someone volunteered to forego their plate. The main course itself is vegetarian that is a spaghetti-style noodle with plain tomato sauce. Finally the biggest issue is that our bus broke down half way during the tour. We were told we would receive a partial refund but have yet to receive it. I had to contact them and am waiting on a response. City wonders should make sure they company they contract with regularly maintenances their buses and/or has 1-2 on standby. They could not send any other bus to us. We were not updated properly throughout the ordeal either.
