Bid farewell to the hours of idle window gazing. Through this transfer tour from Rome to Florence, you'll immerse yourself in the UNESCO heritage of Val’Orcia, in the typical Tuscan flavors of Siena and Pienza, accompanied by our passionate English-speaking guide until the arrival in the cradle of Renaissance Florence.

 

As you settle into the luxurious comfort of our Mercedes van/bus, you'll embark on a picturesque voyage to Pienza, a charming town boasting one of the world's most captivating views: Val d’Orcia, acknowledged as a UNESCO heritage site. As you traverse its undulating terrain, a patchwork of vineyards, olive groves, and rustic hamlets stretches out, each element contributing to a view that seems like an artist composition. 

Once you arrive in Pienza, you'll have a complete hour to explore its captivating lanes. During this time, relish a tasting event that highlights the region's characteristic local products. Delight in the distinct flavors of pecorino cheeses and other specialties that epitomize the essence of this unique area.

 

When your visit to Pienza ends, the transfer tour  as you re-enter the van and make your way to the vibrant city of Siena. As you step off the van, the essence of Siena envelops you – a blend of narrow winding streets, bustling piazzas, and architectural marvels that speak of a rich and storied medieval past. Here, one of the tour's apexes awaits – a delicious  3-course Tuscan lunch, elegantly complemented by local wines. This culinary indulgence is an occasion to uncover the authentic tastes of Tuscany while bonding with your fellow sojourners. Post-lunch, a guided walking tour through Siena commences, affording you the chance to navigate its narrow alleys and uncover its concealed treasures. From the splendor of the Church of San Domenico to the vivacious energy of Piazza Salimbeni, you'll traverse the heart of Siena, pausing at the charming corners that define its character.

 

Following this immersive guided excursion, it's time to bid adieu to Siena and embark on the final phase of your journey to Florence. Wrapped in the comfort of your conveyance, you'll be seamlessly transported to your destination, the echoes of your Tuscan escapade lingering in your recollections. As you approach Florence, the cityscape gradually unfolds before your eyes – a harmonious blend of iconic landmarks, historic buildings, and the serene Arno River that winds its way through the heart of the city. The domes of magnificent cathedrals and the towers of palaces punctuate the skyline.
