Overview

The tour begins with a drive through the rolling, grape-clad scenery leading us to Montalcino. Once here, you can breathe in the timeless character of this hill town with its narrow and winding alleyways and squares. The town is also the home of the world-famous Brunello wines. Visit a famous and renowned wine cellar set on an estate with a rich history. Here you can taste these rich and aged wines and receive expert advice and suggestions from a connoisseur.

Go up to the top of the town along alleys and streets lined with flower-covered houses and peeks of the plains spreading out before you. Here you can feast your eyes and breath in the history and culture of the place.

Continue on to the perfect Renaissance model of a city: Pienza. Perched on a hill top, the town seeps history and also offers one of the best cheeses in the world: Pecorino. You'll be given the chance to taste the best of the cheeses (included in the tour price) and then you'll have free time to look at the palaces and piazzas of this Florence in miniature.

The last stop is the elegant and refined hill town of Montepulciano. It stands 605 meters above sea level, encircled by massive fortifications. It really is like walking into the past. But now a days it's home to the highly esteemed Vino Nobile. Here you will take part in your second wine tasting session whilst visiting the cellar where the wine is stored.

A perfectly tasteful way to explore one of the regions most loved by true and discerning Tuscans.
