A heady tour to southern Tuscany including the breathtakingly perfect town Pienza.
A guided tour to experience and enjoy the delicious foods and beautiful fruity wines of Tuscany while travelling across some of the region’s most charming landscapes and villages.
The tour also includes a visit to Montepulciano, which sits high on a limestone ridge. There is an elegant town hall in the main square, a miniature version of the Piazza Grande in Florence. The town produces the wonderful red wine ‘Vino Nobile di Montepulciano’. You will be taken to a vineyard to try the celebrated wines of the region and see how it is produced. Then time to enjoy a lovely lunch, and try homemade Tuscan pasta and other typical dishes.
Then head onto Pienza, a town commissioned by Pope Pius II, to perfectly complement the harmonious surroundings. It is a place of dreams. The symmetrical pines and green and yellow fields are perhaps recognizable due to the countless directors who have been inspired to film in the region. At the town’s heart is a lovely Duomo with a Renaissance façade. Here you will try some more local delicacies, including Pienza’s famous cheeses!
A heady tour of southern Tuscany that will leave you feeling intoxicated from the sheer beauty and aromas.
