Small-Group Tuscany Day Trip from Rome with Hill Towns and Castles
Next we’re heading over to an organic, family-run farm. After a tour of the farm it’s time to sit down for a Tuscan feast of local, seasonal ingredients straight from the fields. The meal is capped off with a full tasting of the farm’s best seasonal food. In between chats with the farm owners you will sip on local wines and enjoy incredible views over the famous Val d’Orcia region.
After lunch you’ll go to Montalcino, a hill town famous, among many other things, for its beautiful castle. With special, extended access tickets you can climb the lookout towers and gape at the views of the surrounding countryside or snap off a few pictures that will be the envy of all your friends back home.
To end the day you’ll visit a vineyard for a guided tour of the vines and wine cellar. And what would a visit to a Tuscan vineyard be without a full tasting? Try a flight of some of the region’s best wines and feel free to buy a bottle or two (once again, with no obligation) to stash in your bag.
We won’t spoil a perfect day with a large group. Enjoy an intimate group of 18 people or fewer with an expert, English-speaking leader to facilitate your journey and make introductions as well as an expert driver who knows the country roads better than anyone. Our goal is to give you a truly Italian experience that will leave you hankering for Tuscany long after you’ve returned home.

First of all, our guide Alessandra made this such a fun and memorable day. I couldn't have imagined this day without her knowledge of the region and her passion for Italy and of course, Tuscany and wine. Beautiful countryside, quaint towns filled with lovely people, and the food. OH THE FOOD! AND THE WINE!! One of the most memorable lunches I have ever had and probably will ever have. Thank you for this amazing tour!
This day could not have been better. We had the most helpful and experienced tour guide. The travel by small Mercedes bus (15 max) was comfortable and allowed great views of the countryside. Visits to a small mountain town, a working farm with an amazing lunch, and authenic wine tasting was simply awesome. If you have the opportunity, book this one! I would do it again!
We enjoyed this full day trip very much! It was relaxing. We were a small group which was nice. Our bus trip to Tuscany was pleasant and our tour guideChiara was very informative and pointed out many sights along the way. Stopping at an organic farm where we had lunch was excellent! The food was very fresh and tasty! Wine was good as well! Just prior to lunch we stopped at Pienza and very nice,picturesque village where we sample some home made cheesesyummy. We had some free time to look around the shops and enjoy the surrounding countryside! I would have like about another half hour here instead of the long visit at the farm just shorten the farm visit by 1/2 hr!. We carried on and visited an old stone castle again enjoyed the beautiful views then onto a winery were we did some more wine drinking! A lovely day away from the hustle and bustle of Rome!
