Travel to the scenic Val d'Orcia in the Tuscan countryside on a private minivan tour from Florence.
Begin in the hilltop town of Montepulciano, famous for its Noble Wines and charming historic center. Stroll through the Piazza Grande to see the Palazzo Comunale and the tower overlooking the square. Climb the tower to see the views toward Lake Trasimeno. Stop for wine tastings in the cellars near the historic square.
Enjoy a break for lunch (own expense) before continuing to Pienza, with a stop at a cheese factory en route. Sample some 'pecorino' made in Pienza. Explore the Renaissance architecture of the planned city of Pienza, including the Palazzo Piccolomini, Palazzo Borgia, Cathedral and Town Hall before being returned to your hotel in Florence.
