Leave the bustle of the city and escape to the glorious Tuscan countryside on this delightful awayday. The tour focuses on the famous Val D’Orcia region with its quaint hill-towns and lush vineyards. Visit the ancient Etruscan town of Montepulciano and see the Duomo, the main square and Punch’s Tower.
You will board a comfortable air-conditioned bus in Rome and drive through the scenic Italian countryside. The places that you will visit are:
Montepulciano: see the exposed brick Duomo, the main square, Punch’s Tower and ancient Etruscan wells and medieval wine cellars.
Sant’Antimo Abbey: listen to Gregorian chants.
Montalciano: full of vineyards and home to Italian’s finest wine, Brunello di Montalcino. Stop at a vineyard for lunch and wine tastings.
