DAY TOUR FROM FLORENCE TO “TUSCANY” (car and walking tour)
Full day Tuscany private tour to visit some beautiful Medieval/Renaissance hilltop towns surrounded by great countryside: Montepulciano, Pienza & Montalcino.
We’ll start our Tuscany tour driving you from Florence to Montepulciano (110 km/68 miles South of Florence), a medieval and Renaissance hill town in southern Tuscany; Montepulciano is a major producer of food and drink; renowned for its pork, cheese, “pici” pasta, lentils, and honey, it is known world-wide for its wine: connoisseurs consider its Vino Nobile among Italy’s best; time for sightseeing and wine tasting in a unique wine cellar. We’ll then with a visit to Pienza: a town and, in the Val d’Orcia, Pienza is the “touchstone of Renaissance urbanism”; time for lunch and sightseeing. Next stop will be in Montalcino: another beautiful hilltop town, famous for its Brunello di Montalcino wine; time for wine tasting. Our last stop will be at the Abbey of Sant’Antimo, a former Benedictine monastery, that together with its surrounding landscape forms one of the most beautiful “pictures” of Tuscany.
I am not going to give you a lecture – unless you want to – I will be informative but I won’t overdo with too many dates and names, I will make your visit fun with anecdotes and legends, you will have time to enjoy a typical local meal, a coffee or an ice cream: I know you are here on holiday and your holiday is meant to be relaxing and fun.
