Private day trip from Florence to experience three wonderful cities in the heart of Tuscany: Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza, surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the Orcia Valley.

Your day tour to Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza, begins in the morning with the meeting of your private driver in the lobby of your hotel in Florence.

Your driver takes you to the Tuscan area south of Siena, where in the suggestive landscape of the Val d'Orcia are the three beautiful medieval towns of Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza, where you will have time to explore at your leisure and guided visit prestigious wineries in Montalcino and Montepulciano with guided tastings of their fine wines, including Brunello di Montalcino and Nobile di Montepulciano.


Montalcino is a pretty village, where Romanesque-Gothic architecture prevails, dominated by the fourteenth-century Rocca Medicea which houses an Enoteca that offers for sale almost all the most representative Brunello of the area.

The vineyards are mainly cultivated with Sangiovese, a clone of Sangiovese known as Sangiovese Grosso, so called due to the thickness of the skin.

Brunello di Montalcino was born from the inspiration of Ferruccio Biondi – Santi, who sensed the aging potential of Sangiovese grosso to obtain a full, structured and full-bodied wine: Brunello di Montalcino which has been one of the best Italian wines for over 150 years.

Today the golden hill of Montalcino, thanks to its terroir, good climatic conditions and huge capital investments, represents the most successful reality in the Italian wine sector.

Brunello - the crème de la crème of Italian enology - really shows its potential: wonderful elegance combined with excellent potency and concentration of taste and aroma, with hints of spice. Brunello never wants to be "a light drink".

In Montalcino guided tour of a winery followed by a tasting of Montalcino wines including the famous Brunello.

Between Montalcino and Montepulciano stands Pienza, a rare example of a Renaissance city in the heart of the Val d'Orcia. Director Franco Zeffirelli used the romantic city as a film set for Romeo and Juliet.

Strolling in the center of Pienza you will appreciate this town was completely redesigned by Pope Pius II, supported by the architect Bernardo Rossellino in 1459. This new vision of the urban space was realized in the superb square called Piazza Pio II and in the surrounding buildings: Palazzo Piccolomini, Palazzo Borgia and the Cathedral where Renaissance and Gothic styles merge.

Montepulciano is an ancient Etruscan settlement, transformed into a fortified village in the Middle Ages and surrounded by walls and fortifications designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Elder in 1511 during the Medici domination.

The town has an unusually harmonious aspect, the main square with the Cathedral; absolutely worth seeing are the elegant Palazzo de 'Nobili-Tauragi, the austere Palazzo Comunale and the splendid Renaissance Church of San Biagio.

The town is known for the production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, another son of the Sangiovese vine locally called Prugnolo Gentile, a full-bodied ruby red.

The Vino Nobile is a vibrant intense ruby red, with a nose rich in cherry and raspberry fruit.  Your guided tour of a Montepulciano winery will be followed by a tasting of Montepulciano wines including the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
