PIENZA AND MONTEPULCIANO TOUR
DURATION: FULL DAY – 9 HOURS
This tour takes us into one of the most beautiful areas of Tuscany, the famous “Val D’Orcia”, almost 2 hrs drive from Florence but well worth the journey! Here we will visit 2 stunning towns with amazing views and attractions.
Pienza, famous for the production of PECORINO sheep cheese is a delightful treasure and was historically important as an IDEAL RENAISSANCE TOWN, redesigned under the power of Pope Pius II in the 15th century. Enjoy breathtaking views of Monte Amiata from Pienza and we will be sure to have time to sample the cheese!
Breathtaking views from Pienza
Montepulciano Wine Cellar
The next town is equally as impressive: MONTEPULCIANO, one of Tuscany’s highest hilltop towns and famous all over the world for their premier class wine, VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO, and more recently for the filming of many blockbuster movies such as NEW MOON!
Montepulciano is unique in that in the town centre we can find wine cellars constructed in the caves of Etruscan remains, still used today to age the precious NOBILE wine! Of course we will have time to taste a glass or two!
