This activity will end right where it started.
Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour, and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished façade, medieval wine cellars, and the old town walls.

After a break for photos, travel further into Tuscany to explore the area around Montalcino. Step inside Sant’ Antimo Abbey, and then soak up the vistas that stretch beyond the vineyards.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

Tuscany Day Trip from Rome Worthwhile
Dayna_K
, Aug 2022
We enjoyed our day trip to Tuscany from Rome. The small towns, Montepulciano and Pienze are worth a visit for sure. We were a bit disappointed to have a group of 45 on one bus and only 1 of the 2 promised local guides in Montepulciano, but our guide Errika did a nice job managing through this (and all the other minor inconveniences like tour members who didn't respect departure times). We loved the food and the sisters who own the winery/restaurant where we had lunch. The special Pili pasta was wonderful and they were very accomodating for those with food allergies (like gluten). The bus was comfortable and our driver, Mario, had a good sense of humor. We enjoyed the day and our taste of Tuscany.

Tuscany day with lunch and wine tasting (or suppose)
Chloe_C
, Aug 2022
They small city we visited first was beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable. The wine tasting was not what we expected. We didn’t learn much about the wine making process or even see their vineyard. Would suggest less stops on the way home and more time at the restaurant/shop learning about the wine and food products.

Best day trip and food of my vacation!

This was my favorite trip from the week. I loved the tour of Montepulciano, and attending the annual barrel race is now on my bucket list. The 3-course meal at Ristorante della Fattoria Pulcino was the best food I had during my stay. Anna was a fantastic guide.

We were in Rome for 3 days and wanted to take a tour of Tuscany whilst we were in Italy. The tour takes you to some beautiful towns. Lunch was lovely. However, it could have been shorter to allow more time for exploring this beautiful region. Our guide was knowledgable with a great sense of humour.

Go Anna
Gaurav_P
, Aug 2022
Had a very informative and simultaneously a very relaxing and fun tour to Tuscany with Anna and Aurelio. They make a good team and were really helpful and precise throughout the tour. One recommendation that we had is we needed some free time in both the villages we visited in this tour. That felt very rushed and the second stop at the shopping centre felt unnecessary and can be used as free time in the village for people to actually take in the beauty of Tuscany. Had a wonderful time at the Lunch hosted by the Italian family at their family farm. They took alot of efforts for us to taste authentic Tuscan meal. Would really recommend this tour to all of our friends and carry this memory for life as we return to India. It was a dream come true. Keep up the good work Anna. Hope our recommendation is included in future tours for better experience.

The 3-course meal and getting to know different people in the same tour group was great. Also, visiting Multiciano and Pienza - the small town/family feeling. There should be more forewarning of steep walk in Multiciano (sp?) Beautiful vineyards and scenery. Our tour guide was very nice. At times, it was difficult to understand her English.

This Tuscany Tour and Its Tour Guide PETER are the BEST!
nicolexf
, Aug 2022
During my 17-day trip to Italy, Greece, Turkey, I had 5 tour guides. SO FAR, Peter from "Tuscany Day Trip from Rome including 3-Course Lunch and Wine Tasting " is the BEST of ALL. Peter speaks perfect English, he is very knowledgeable on food, wine, culture in both Italy and US. My understanding is that he grew up in Both Italy and US, and he completed his college in US. I have learned so much during this tour and I kept comparing other tour guides with him and always feel disappointed about other tour guides. I booked the tour last minute when my husband got sick and could not do anything on that day. I feel blessed that I had an opportunity to see the place I have been wanting to see for long time. And Peter has made my experience so much more than I expected .... the 3-course authentic Italian lunch and wine tasting were fantastic!! Peter is a great tour guide, not only he is cultured, he also has a great sense of humor. The entire tour was arranged perfectly, I did not feel being rushed or time being wasted. I am very critical but I would give PETER and his tour 100% - 200% if I can. :) You should definitely take his tour! Nicole from Los Angeles, CA

Our unforgettable Tuscany adventure
Julia_B
, Aug 2022
Our trip was perfect from start to finish. Maralena and Andreas made sure that we had the best day. What can we say, from the arrangements and organisation, to the luxury air conditioned travel and smooth safe driving, to the best coffee we’ve had in Rome, to the breathless views at Montepulciano and Pienza, to the passion and joy that the sisters at Fattoria Pulcina Ristorante showed as they shared their knowledge and stories about their family, farm, traditions, delicious food and amazing wines; everything was considered and just delightful. Maralena has an informative but gentle approach to storytelling that kept us intrigued all the way. Andreas also captivated us with his knowledge of the history of his home town. The whole trip was simply unforgettable and we would definitely 110% recommended it.
