Overview
A day amid art, culture, wine, and delicious food. Do you want an unforgettable experience in the stunning Val d'Orcia region of Tuscany? Join this tour and visit wonderful cities to learn about their food and history. You'll also taste the region's renowned wine, cheese and traditional produce in one day.
Highlights
  • Get a panoramic overview of the Val d’Orcia region, a Unesco World Heritage site
  • Visit Montalcino, Pienza, and Montepulciano in one day
  • Spend an hour at each town to explore on your own
  • Hassle-free, roundtrip transport from central Florence
What to Expect
Spend a day exploring the agricultural valley of Val d’Orcia, a Unesco World Heritage site of golden plains, rolling hills, and unparalleled gastronomy. Experience the art, landscapes, food, and history with a guide.

Your tour begins with pickup at Stazione Leopolda in Florence, where you meet your guide and hop on a coach or minivan for the roughly 1.5-hour journey to Montalcino. Upon arrival, sample wine and snacks in a local winery. Afterward, your guide takes you on a short walking tour of the town.

The next stop is Pienza, where you learn about the local cuisine and spend some free time exploring on your own. The town is famous for its pecorino cheese—Parmigiano's saltier cousin— and the church, papal palace, and town hall built by Pope Pius II in 1459. You’ll have plenty of time to snap photos of the romantic little town.

Head toward the medieval town of Montepulciano, most famous for its Vino Nobile. Your guide tells you how the wine has become a symbol of the town and takes you a local winery to sample it.

Then, hop back on the coach or minivan for the journey back to Florence.

But the girl doing her Instagram updates during the whole tour was annoying. "Hey guys, It's day three....wait, let me tug on my top. Hey guys, it's day three....." Otherwise, a good tour. Montepulciano was well worth the whole day.
