Tuscany is the region of a thousand discoveries: book a day tour dedicated to beauty, wine and excellent food in Val d'Orcia: Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino are waiting for you!
We reach Montepulciano and head to the discovery of the town center, which, as often happens for the towns enclosed by walls, is very quiet with the classic characteristics of the medieval village.
The wine cellars of this locality are really famous and they follow one another along the main street of the town, alternate with small shops of ancient crafts, which have remained uncontaminated over time: from the gentleman who works the copper to the one who works the glass.
We head to another village that always has its roots in the Val d’Orcia: Pienza.
Pienza is very famous for the production of cheese. When you will arrive you will be inebriated by the scent, which never leaves the area. Part of the significant historical and artistic heritage of Pienza is concentrated in the suggestive square dedicated to Pope Pius II, UNESCO heritage.
Within the walls of this village, wonderful Renaissance buildings alternate with shops specializing in the sale of local cheese, in the more or less seasoned, more or less tasty version.
Take some time to breathe the special medieval atmosphere of the magnificent Tuscan village of Montalcino, which has remained almost intact since the 16th century. Once you reach the top, a real spectacle opens up before your eyes: a continuous succession of sinuous hills dotted here and there with yellow and red flowers, ancient oaks, picturesque olive trees, panoramic roads of countryside winding through harmonious vineyards and isolated cypresses here and there.
The city has become rich and famous thanks to Brunello, one of the best Italian wines and one of the most popular in the world. The village was already renowned for its red wines in the fifteenth century.
At the end of the tour you will visit one of the historic wine cellars of the Tuscan countryside, one of the most renowned wine regions in Italy. You will have the chance to sip the wine varieties during the guided tastings, and bring the full flavor of the wines to life with a light gourmet Tuscan lunch.
Val d’Orcia remains in your heart.
