MONTEPULCIANO AND PIENZA
Our guide and driver will be waiting for you at your hotel. Depart to visit one of the most prestigious wine cellar in the town of Montepulciano for a Nobile di Montepulciano wine tasting with salami, pecorino cheese and bruschettas. Then we drive to Pienza. For its undeniable beauty of art and history, in 1996 UNESCO declared this village a World Heritage Site. There are many reasons why it is worth visiting Pienza: its history, monuments and gastronomy. Pienza begins its development from the Fifteenth Century, by Pope Pius II who was born there. Return to hotel late afternoon.

Meet with the guide and driver at 9am and depart for a tour of Montalcino and Bagno Vignoni. Visit a wine estate in Montalcino for a Brunello DOCG wine tasting and then stop at Bagno Vignoni, a unique hamlet built around its “bath-square”, formed by the natural thermal waters of the area.
Visit the Italian Garden of Villa La Foce: a beautiful villa overlooking the Val d’Orcia landscape, which was a symbol of the partisan resistance during World War II.
