Enjoy a day tour of the Val d'Orcia wine region, featuring Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano

The Chianti area in Tuscany is renowned as the most beautiful countryside in the world and the Val d'Orcia wine roads, defined by the pretty villages of Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano, are among the most revered of the Chianti wine regions. Famous for wines, this region enchants every visitor with the beauty of its medieval hill-towns, castles, stone farmhouses and breath-taking landscapes.

This day trip along the Val d'Orcia wine roads offers you the opportunity to explore the most suggestive areas of Tuscany and is available departing from several cities (please see below). The tour begins with a coach tour of the glorious Tuscan countryside, allowing you to sit back, relax and take in stunning views defined by rolling fields of green and gold dotted with vibrant vineyards. The first stop is at a wine cellar in Montalcino, where you will taste a sampling of wines as well as some delicious local snacks. In the afternoon, one of our expert tour leaders will guide you around Montalcino, where you will visit the typical village sights and its fortress. Then you will visit Pienza and Montepulciano, two artistic jewels representing the landscape of Val d’Orcia. Pienza is a perfect combination of architectural beauty and harmonious landscapes, while Montepulciano brings Renaissance architecture and the refined beauty of its churches intertwined with the ancient tradition of its wine, Nobile di Montepulciano, which is a symbol of the city. The tour ends with a tasting of this iconic wine at a local winery.
