Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Heading north out of Rome by luxury coach, your Tuscany day trip first takes you to Montepulciano, famous for its vino and views! Nestled in southern Tuscany, Montelpulciano is a Renaissance hill-town, famed for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a red wine. With your guide, take a walking tour and see the Florentine-style clock tower, the Etruscan city walls, medieval wine cellars and the interestingly unfinished Duomo.After a stop for photos, get back on your coach to travel west into the heart of Tuscany, to the area surrounding Montalcino. Here you'll visit the gorgeous Sant' Antimo Abbey, where the stone walls ring with the sound of Gregorian chants, before admiring the views over the town's vineyards. The rich Brunello di Montepulciano red wine is produced at these vineyards, and you'll sample a glass over a three-course lunch at one of the area's traditional farms! Featuring produce grown on the farm, your lunch allows you to dine in true Tuscan style before enjoying a wine tasting of each of the wines grown on site.Spend part of your afternoon in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Pienza, where you'll have approximately 45 minutes to explore at your leisure. The town's layout was designed by Pope Pius II in the 14th century, as he wanted to transform the look of his birthplace. As you explore independently, soak up the serene ambience that stays true to the Pope's vision, and marvel at the town’s beautiful ancient architecture. Be sure to look in the shops for Pienza's most famous product – Pecorino cheese!As your day comes to an end, meet your guide back at the coach for the relaxing return journey to Rome.

Florence Aperitivo Tasting Tour with Ponte Vecchio, Oltrarno

Upon meeting your local guide, we’ll take a stroll through the city, chatting about national and local aperitivo traditions. Our first stop will be a typical wine bar that serves tripe, the most well-known street food in Florence. If you are game you can have a taste in the form of a small petite panino. A tasting of pecorino from southen Tuscany, Tuscan prosciutto and local foccacia bread called schiacciata will be served next, street food-style alongside our first glass of traditional Chianti. Up next, we’ll take a stroll along one of the city’s most beautiful streets and indulge in a spot of window shopping as we gaze at sumptuous displays of Italian fashion. We’ll arrive at a historic wine bar that’s owned by a family who have been making wine for thirty generations! Here we’ll taste a full-bodied super Tuscan red and soak up the old world atmosphere. We’ll then take you to the secret palace drive-through that used to sell wine in a similar fashion to the way burger chains sell their wares now.  Our last but certainly not least stop is at a local cocktail bar where you will meet professional Florentine mixologists who really know their stuff when it comes to mixing a killer blend. Choose from a selection of classic Italian cocktails, your guide (who is an expert on all things wine and gin!) will fill you in on local stories related to the bar’s vast cocktail selection. More local snacks will be served, paired perfectly with your choice of drink, of course. After a fun filled crash course in Italian aperitivo, we hope you feel ready to try it on your own. Your tour will end with a stroll back to the meeting point but before you head off, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your time in Florence.
