Meet your English speaking driver-guide at your hotel and drive to Val d'Orcia, the southern part of Tuscany, famous for its marvelous hills, lush landscape and (of course) excellent wines!

First up is the town of Montepulciano to discover its charm and Noble Wine.  The biggest and highest of southern Tuscany's hill towns, see its medieval alleyways and a plethora of Renaissance palaces.  The land around the town produces a violet-scented, orange-speckled ruby wine called "Noble Wine" and this area has been known since at least the 8th century for its superior wines.

Next comes charming Montalcino - a typical village and fortress – plus, needless to say, wineries...and a stop will be at a local winery for tasting the legendary Brunello wine!  Brunello di Montalcino is the best-selling high quality wine in Italy and has become the flagship of Tuscan and Italian wines in the world.

Finally before returning to Rome, visit the less famous hilltop medieval village of Pienza - a perfect combination of architectural beauty and harmony.  Most of the numerous streets bearing impressive names overlook the breathtaking landscape of Val d'Orcia.  Unique tastes, smells and flavors support this natural and artistic heritage.  Pienza's most renowned tradition is the typical Pecorino cheese.

Rates are per-vehicle for the number of persons indicated and do not include food or wine tasting fees where applicable (some tastings are free, some have fees payable day of tour).
