Tour Description
Embark on a transcendent journey through the Val d'Orcia, a Tuscan tapestry of emerald hills, cypress groves, and medieval charm, renowned for its exquisite wines and cheeses. Under the azure Tuscan sky, your senses will awaken as you wind through the picturesque countryside, marveling at the rolling hills, ancient villages, and iconic cypress trees that grace this idyllic valley.

You will travel by car to Pienza, a Renaissance gem perched atop a hilltop, you'll savor the flavors of the region, savoring artisanal pecorinos at charming boutiques. Along with your local expert guide, you'll visit the Renaissance-style Duomo and city center, tasting various local pecorinos at small boutique food shops.

Next, you will quench your thirst in Montalcino, a world-renowned wine town. You'll enjoy a light lunch at a traditional enoteca, where local cheeses, salami, and wines await. In the afternoon, the abbey of Sant'Antimo awaits, its ancient stones whispering tales of faith and history. From here, you'll get an in-depth look at the local wine scene with a visit to a Montalcino winery, where you will indulge in samples of the highly-regarded Brunello wine and learn about its history and production. 

As the sun casts its golden glow over the Tuscan hills, you will be driven back to your accommodation, sated by both appreciation for the region's culinary traditions and the tastings.

Great way to see the Tuscany landscape and appreciate the Brunello wines.
Lovely trip! Stella is amazing and Alessandro a perfect driver!
Driver and guide were excellent. She reorganized a few things on the fly and made trip that much better. The small towns we visited and stopping along the road to step out and take pics were awesome. The restaurant overlooking the valley was great and winery was a nice final stop. Great Day!
