Description

An enchanting day spent visiting three charming and evocative Tuscan towns, where time seems to have come to a halt
and ancient traditions and country-style serenity thrive and live on. Depart your hotel by private Mercedes car or minivan with English speaking driver and travel to Montepulciano. The town, which overlooks the neat fields of the fertile Val di Chiana valley, is world-renowned for its delectable wines and as birthplace of the famous poet Agnolo Ambrogini known as “Poliziano”. Enjoy strolling through the town at leisure to explore the delightful city center, filled with Medieval vestiges and enriched by magnificent Renaissance walls and gorgeous noble palaces. Then travel on to the hills surrounding Montalcino, lined with dark cypresses, fortified towns and rich vineyards. The area is world-celebrated for producing some of Tuscany’s most esteemed red wines: the celebrated Brunello di Montalcino and the Rosso di Montalcino. Visit a local winery and enjoy a delicious typical Tuscan light lunch with excellent wines. After lunch drive on to Pienza, a spellbinding town created by Enea Silvio Piccolomini, (then Pope Pius II) to be the “ideal” city it was built according to the urban and architectural rules of the Renaissance. True to its promise, it is the only town in Italy to actually be an example of a perfect Renaissance town! Meet your dedicated private English-speaking guide and enjoy a memorable guided visit through the exquisite center, noting the most charming details and seeing the marvelous landmarks.
