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.

This trip was the best I've ever had and would do it again. I was fortunate enough to have Andrea as my tour guide and he completely enhanced the trip; his humor and welcoming personality made the trip even all the better. He obviously is knowledgable in just about anything you ask him about Italy. This trip never had a dull moment. All the activities that were included were well worth the price and so much more; nothing lagged on for too long either. The farm was my favorite part of the whole thing, it felt like a dream!! For sure booking a trip there in the future. I am recommending this to my friends (also if you can have Andrea be your guide, he's the best!!) and honestly anyone else who is heading out to Italy.

Great itinerary with a fantastic lunch included. Smaller vehicle and group size let's you get to where the bigger tour buses can't go.

This day trip was by far our favorite. The lunch at the organic farm was delicious. We loved Positano. It was relaxing and fulfilling. Just a perfect taste of Tuscany.
