Full description
Embark on a drive through the south of Tuscany to visit some of the oldest hill towns in the region. Your driver will pick you up at your Florence hotel and you’ll spend a full day in comfort as you experience the beautiful scenery and stop to taste some of the delicious wines and cheeses produced here.

First you will visit Montepulciano, famous for its red wine, Nobile di Montepulciano, and for its great monuments of the Renaissance devised by famous architects. Take some time for a walk in the historical centre and enjoy a wine tasting at a famous winery in the main square. At lunch time, choose between a typical trattoria in Montepulciano or a Pecorino cheese farm in Pienza, the second hill-town scheduled for the day.

Pienza has medieval origins, but was transformed into a Renaissance town by the architect Rossellino, on the request of Pope Pius II. Here you can visit the beautiful Cathedral, the Diocesano Museum and take a walk through the shops that offer food specialities such as sheep’s milk cheese. Enjoy a great view of the Orcia Valley, which is said to be like a green sea, especially between April and May.
