What to expect

Experience the quintessential allure of Tuscany without the stress of planning with our comprehensive guided tour. Begin your journey departing from Rome aboard a comfortable air-conditioned coach, where your knowledgeable English-speaking tour leader will enrich your trip with insights into the region's rich cultural heritage, rooted in the pre-Roman Etruscan civilization.

Your first destination is the enchanting hilltop town of Montepulciano, where a local guide will lead you through its winding streets, past dramatic clock towers, and into ancient wine cellars. Explore the captivating architecture of St. Biagio's Church, a remarkable blend of Renaissance artistry and the natural beauty of the Tuscan landscape. Marvel at its unique location, overlooking the picturesque Tuscan hills, and admire its Renaissance Greek cross central plan, originally conceived by architectural luminaries Bramante and Michelangelo for St. Peter's Basilica in Rome.

After working up an appetite, indulge in a delectable Tuscan feast amidst vineyards, accompanied by a traditional 3-course lunch and expertly paired local wines, including the renowned Brunello di Montalcino. As you savor the flavors of Tuscany, immerse yourself in the spirit of the Renaissance as you explore Pienza, a UNESCO World Heritage village meticulously redesigned by Pope Pius II in the 15th century. Wander its charming streets, shop for local delicacies, capture captivating photographs, and treat yourself to authentic gelato.
