The three gems south of Siena are not to be missed and this is the reason why we offer a day tour of Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino, the famous area of vineyards and wine cellars of Tuscany.
Pienza is considered the ideal Renaissance city and the first example of urban planning. This quintessential Tuscan hill town was added to UNESCO's World Heritage list in 1996. From a gastronomic perspective, Pienza is the land of pecorino cheese.
Built on the ridge of Mount Poliziano, Montepulciano is a lovely town full of history, art and architecture. Wander the steep narrow streets filled with shops, wine bars and historic sites. Enjoy the views from its panoramic terraces and don't forget to have a glass of its most famous red wine: Nobile di Montepulciano.
Montalcino is known for its medieval fortress and its extraordinary Brunello wine. The town is small but quaint and the surrounding landscape of the Val d'Orcia is simply enchanting.
