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

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 look-out 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.

This was the BEST tour yet ! I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Juilano was a very good guide for this. The farms we stopped at were the best . Both the Tornesi and Innocenti wineries. Our bus developed a flat but thanks to our bus driver ,( I apologize I forgot his name). He remained calm along with Juliano and a few helpers on the bus. It still is one of my most favorite highlights. The weather was perfect, it happened after the tour on the way home , so we didn't miss anything i actually wanted to do a tour of 2 days on the Amalfi. Walks did not offer one, so I found another company. But due to my lack of time because i had scheduled to fly to Turkiye for a few day. So that was how i ended up taking this Tuscan trip. I will write more about this tour outside of the survey because I do have a couple of ideas.

This tour we enjoyed very much. We loved Mauela she is a sweet heart and very friendly. My wife and I and she are friends now. Just a couple of notes and Manuela saw this in my face at the Castle walls. She said to me "not what you expected?" I said, I knew because of what was being said online and it's raining so it's ok I'm good. To be honest it is more of a fortification than a castle. That being said, we wonder if this tour could be done in reverse. The reason, it was a long ride back to Rome from Montalcino everyone was really tired by then. I am thinking because everyone is fresh in the morning it would feel easier to do the tour in reverse. It seemed not to take so long getting to Pienza Town. Just a thought, maybe something to think about.
