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.

My daughter and I agreed our Tuscany day was our favorite of the week I spent with her in Rome. Julio was a perfect host and we were lucky to have a fun and friendly group. Thanks for a great experience.

This day could not have been better. We had the most helpful and experienced tour guide. The travel by small Mercedes bus (15 max) was comfortable and allowed great views of the countryside. Visits to a small mountain town, a working farm with an amazing lunch, and authenic wine tasting was simply awesome. If you have the opportunity, book this one! I would do it again!

First of all, our guide Alessandra made this such a fun and memorable day. I couldn't have imagined this day without her knowledge of the region and her passion for Italy and of course, Tuscany and wine. Beautiful countryside, quaint towns filled with lovely people, and the food. OH THE FOOD! AND THE WINE!! One of the most memorable lunches I have ever had and probably will ever have. Thank you for this amazing tour!
