Start your day with a pick up from your centrally located Rome hotel. Then, sitting comfortably in a luxury minivan, make your way out of the city to Tuscany’s UNESCO-listed Val d'Orcia region.

Cross the cobbled streets and have your camera ready as you pass buildings that date back to the Renaissance and Middle Ages. Here you’ll also enjoy free time to explore this picturesque town on your own.

Next, head to the charming medieval village of Bagno Vignoni, located on a hill surrounded by the valley Orcia river and famous for its thermal waters used since Roman times. Spend some time walking around this beautiful village and capture the vibrant atmosphere of the place.

Continue on to Montalcino wine area, famous for its rich Brunello di Montepulciano wine. Enjoy a tour of a prestigious winery to learn about its winemaking methods. After exploring the vineyards and cellars, treat your taste buds to another tasting session while you savor a light lunch of cured meat, cheese, bruschetta and extra virgin olive oil.

Your final stop will be the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Pienza, whose layout was designed by Pope Pius II in the 14th century. Spend some time at your leisure, revel in the relaxed atmosphere and marvel at the town’s stunning ancient architecture. You might also wish to purchase some Pecorino cheese, Pienza’s most famous export.

When the time comes, meet back up with your driver and relax on the journey back to your hotel in Rome.
