Overview
This full-day tour is ideal for travelers who want a panoramic overview of the Val d’Orcia region. Pack in visits to three charming villages while wine tasting, sightseeing, and shopping for cheese and wine along the way. Spend at least an hour of free time at each location to explore independently. Plus, you’ll taste two of Italy’s most noble wines, Brunello di Montalcino and Nobile di Montepulciano, at the source.
What to Expect
Spend a day exploring the agricultural valley of Val d’Orcia, a Unesco World Heritage site of golden plains, rolling hills, and unparalleled gastronomy. Experience the art, landscapes, food, and history with a guide.

Your tour begins with pickup at Stazione Leopolda in Florence, where you meet your guide and hop on a coach or minivan for the roughly 1.5-hour journey to Montalcino. Upon arrival, sample wine and snacks in a local winery. Afterward, your guide takes you on a short walking tour of the town.

The next stop is Pienza, where you learn about the local cuisine and spend some free time exploring on your own. The town is famous for its pecorino cheese—Parmigiano's saltier cousin— and the church, papal palace, and town hall built by Pope Pius II in 1459. You’ll have plenty of time to snap photos of the romantic little town.

Head toward the medieval town of Montepulciano, most famous for its Vino Nobile. Your guide tells you how the wine has become a symbol of the town and takes you a local winery to sample it.

Then, hop back on the coach or minivan for the journey back to Florence.

Wine was good, and the countryside was amazing

I enjoyed the wineries, and the wine producers. However, it is misleading to say this was a tuscan wine and food, a little bit of bread and some salami, is not really what I was expecting. I wanted to love this tour, but the tour...More

Long but great day trip

The only reason I didn't give this tour 5 stars is because it was a much bigger group than I expected and as a result we were delayed several times along the way. There were 50 people on this tour and we stopped at 3...More

Beautiful countryside, well-organized trip

I would recommend this trip. It's a great way to escape the crowds of Florence. However, be aware that there were 2 buses involved on this tour. The meeting place is crowded, but check-in is easy. The bus was very comfortable and the driver was...More

Great use of a day to visit the most important sites

We booked this review so we would be able to taste both top wines in Tuscany, the Brunello and the Nobile. The tour did take quite a bit of driving from Florence but we didn't get too tired. The bus was comfortable and our guide...More

Besides wine&food, the greatest landscapes in Italy!

This tour was good. We visited two wine makers, of which the first (Montalcino) was extremely nice. The owner, and older charismatic man, spoke to us about the wine making process, history, etc. and of course about the wine we were tasting. He was also...More
