Pienza and Montepulciano

A classic to visit the most authentic province of Siena with the most representative villages and famous for the food and wine excellences that have made Tuscany and Italy as a whole. A comfortable journey from Siena through the Crete Senesi and the Val d’Orcia Unesco Heritage will guide you first to Pienza defined the ideal city and cradle of the Renaissance, creation of the great humanist Enea Silvio Piccolomini, who later became Pope Pio II who entrusted the work to architect Bernardo called the Rossellino, under the guidance of the great humanist Leon Battista Alberti. In just 3 years a complex of beautiful and harmonious buildings was built: the Cathedral, the papal residence called Palazzo Piccolomini, the Town Hall and the enchanting central square. In the streets with breathtaking views you can visit and taste the many shops that sell the famous pecorino cheese from Pienza, accompanied by wines from the valley. We will head immediately after to Montepulciano, a beautiful medieval village in a postcard landscape on horseback between the two valleys, Val d’Orcia and Val di Chiana. The elegant and ancient historical center with imposing renaissance palaces winds up to reach – on the highest point – the main square. Montepulciano is known internationally especially for its Vino Nobile, one of the most appreciated Tuscan wines in the world. We will take you on a visit to a historic wine cellar built in the ancient quarries dug into the tuff until a wine tasting of the chosen company. We will take care of getting you from your accommodation and bring you back at the end with our comfortable means. Our drivers are very professional, they are not guides – a licensed person and a special extra price would be required by law – but they will certainly be able to recommend the best restaurants and souvenir shops.
