Description

An enchanting day spent visiting three charming and evocative Tuscan towns, where time seems to have come to halt, 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”. Visit the town led by your private English-speaking guide and explore the delightful city center, filled with Medieval vestiges and enriched by magnificent Renaissance walls and gorgeous noble palaces. Then proceed to visit Pienza, a spellbinding town created by Enea Silvio Piccolomini, (then Pope Pius II) to be the “ideal” city, 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! Enjoy a leisurely stroll through its exquisite center, as your guide points out the most charming details and explains the marvelous landmarks. Savor the best local specialties during a delicious typical lunch in Pienza and then travel to your last stop, Montalcino. This charming walled hilltop town set in an outstanding position, 564 meters above sea level, offers awe-inspiring 360° views of the stark rolling hills, marked by winding roads lined with dark cypresses and fortified towns, and rich vineyards that surround it. 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.
