VAL D’ORCIA TOUR
Sightseeing in the Stunning Tuscan Countryside (10 hours)
Depart from Florence and we also offer a personal service of “door to door”.
This tour offers various possibilities …
Starting from Florence we will travel to Montalcino, in the heart of Val D’Orcia. Visit this delightful village (30 mins) then visit the old Abbey of Sant Antimo or on request I can reserve a well known winery to taste the superb Brunello wines.. Our tour will continue to San Quirico taking in the stunning views of the countryside, a stop for lunch in a typical restaurant or alternatively have lunch in the tiny village of Monticchiello.
Afterwards drive to the Medieval village of Pienza (30 mins), visit the centre and try some famous Pecorino cheese and then onto Montepulciano. Here again I can reserve another wine-tasting experience in a Nobile di Montepulciano winery, less expensive than Brunello but just as prestigious.
Transport – comfortable 7 seater V Class Mercedes minivan with air conditioning and English speaking driver. Brunello wine tasting €15-20, Montepulciano wine-tasting €10-15, lunch extra. Journey time outwards 1hr 30 mins, return 1hr 45 mins.
