Sample the best of Tuscany's famous food on a picturesque organic farm

Don't eat too much in Pienza because the next stop on your Tuscany day trip from Rome is a local farm for a sumptuous lunch. When you arrive, you'll take a quick look around to see what is growing or being raised that season, then you'll tuck into a meal featuring seasonal delicacies and the best of what Tuscany has to offer. Because the menu changes according to what's in season we're never quite sure what you're going to be served, but rest assured that you are going to enjoy a proper Tuscan feast.

Climb the walls of a Medieval Castle for stunning views & history

Tuscany is famous for its castles, and your next stop is one of the best. Perched high on top of a hill, Montalcino Castle offers perhaps the best views in Tuscany. With special, extended access you’ll climb the lookout towers and patrol the walls led by your Walks tour leader.

Enjoy world-famous wines right at the source - Montalcino

Oh the wine! Tuscany is world-famous for its wines and none more so than Brunello di Montalcino. You’ll sample some of the best when we visit an award-winning vineyard for a guided tour of the vines and wine cellar, plus a guided tasting flight. Go on – we dare you to leave without a bottle or two stashed in your bag.

With so much to see in this incredible region, stating that we’ve found the best of Tuscany is a bold claim – but one we’re sure you’ll agree with after a delicious day of castles, wine, cheese and perfect hill towns. Our Tuscany day trips from Rome offer a truly Italian experience that will leave you hankering for Tuscany long after you’ve returned home.

Andrea was an absolutely wonderful guide! Vet knowledgeable and personable. I loved the trip itinerary - the farm we went to for lunch was beautiful, and that was by far the best meal of the trip. I also loved the vineyard chosen for the tour, and that a smaller production, more intimate winery was selected.

I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed this tour. I have to say it was one of the best tours we have ever been on, I also can’t say enough about or tour guide Andreas. He worked so hard to make sure that this experience was rememberable. Since our experience was so good we booked two additional tours. Thank you!

What an amazingly beautiful day. From start to finish everything was perfect. The only thing I wish is that the bus had two seats on both sides so that everyone could sit with their travel partner especially since the trip was so long. Otherwise it was everything we had hoped it would be.

Our tour guide was Andrea. He was very energetic and kind person! We had such nice time in Tuscany tour with him. Also bus driver was very nice as well. I had no so great experience with other company in Rome. I am highly recommend your company tour and Andrea in person. Lastly I did not have enough cash to give him tip when I was leaving. I am sorry and please let him know I had a wonderful time and good memories. Thank you very much! Chikako
