Itinerary
Stop At:  
Val d Orcia da Montepulciano
Hours 8.00: Departure from your accommodation from Rome with a luxury car and our English-Spanish speaking driver. A beautiful journey into the heart of Tuscany, while traveling through the famous Crete Senese (clay hills) and green hills, you will enjoy splendid panoramic views. The first stop will be at a winery where you will have a guided tour with a wine expert and the winery on the estate, here you can taste excellent wines and extra virgin olive oil directly from the source of production. Alfredo, winemaker, will present the history of wine from its origins, etc., and will advise you how to taste them, you can taste up to 5 organic wines of flavored varieties. The guided tour starts from the lush vineyards to the vast cellars, then we will go inside the structure to start a wonderful tasting of fine and fruity wines including the famous Nobile di Montepulciano wine; the Nobile di Montepulciano wine is made from a Sangiovese clone known as Prugnolo Gentile. The wine tasting will be accompanied by various local specialties such as cold cuts, hams, cheeses, the oil and bruschetta specialty, the typical sweet wine "vin Santo" with the famous "cantucci". From the beginning of the seventeenth century, this Noble wine was crowned by many as "the king of Tuscan wines" and thanks to the noble classes wishing to receive luxury wine, it became known as the "noble" and "aristocratic" wine, from which comes the name. Later we will visit the narrow and ancient streets of Montepulciano. The walled city of Montepulciano is perched on one of the beautiful Tuscan hills and still retains many incredible art treasures, as well as Etruscan and Roman cellars. And if you haven't had lunch on the farm, you can enjoy a delicious lunch in a local restaurant specializing in traditional Tuscan recipes (not included in the price).

Historic Centre of the City of Pienza
We will visit the small and beautiful town of Pienza, in the heart of the prized Val d'Orcia of Tuscany. Pienza is an architectural jewel as well as a formidable resource for local gastronomic products, particularly sold both fresh and seasoned. In the fifteenth century Pienza was a small fortified town on top of a hill, without distinction and with certain economic problems, until Pope Pius II (Enea Silvio Piccolomini - 1458) decided to turn Pienza into an ideal Renaissance city, a partially successful urban planning firm. You will also have time at your disposal to explore this enchanting city everywhere.
