This tour will offer you the chance of enjoying some of Tuscany's artistic and historical jewels as well as tasting some of the best local food and Italy's best red wine. Driving there is already an experience, since both the views and the towns are unforgettable.
We will reach the town of Pienza, one of Tuscany's best examples of 'ideal city' of the Renaissance thanks to the effort made by pope Pious II.
We will visit the main square, where some of the best Renaissance buildings of the town stand: the Duomo, or Cathedral, the Palazzo Comunale and the Palazzo Borgia and Piccolomini; we will enjoy the panoramic view over the beautiful Val d'Orcia and taste some delicious 'pecorino' (cheese made with sheep's milk) during our lunch, Pienza's most famous local product.
Our tour continues to the town of Montepulciano, full of splendid examples of Renaissance buildings; the vineyards surrounding the walled centre produce some of the best wines Italy offers. You will be treated to some wine tastings before returning to the Eternal City or we will visit Montalcino, known for the world- famous Brunello.
