Once you are picked up by your personal Rome Chauffeur at your hotel or accommodation, you will enjoy a leisurely drive from Rome to southern Tuscany’s picture-perfect Valley of Orcia as you make your way to Pienza.
This charming town is the perfect example of Renaissance urbanism initiated in the 1400s by Pope Pius II who was born in the same town that was previously called Corsignano. Used as a retreat from bustling Rome, Pienza set the standard for the humanist urban planning concept, a form of Utopia that became popular throughout Europe.
Pienza’s claim to fame comes also in form of its delicious locally-produced cheese famously known worldwide as “Pecorino of Pienza”. You will discover in local shops throughout the town wheels upon wheels of various sizes and flavors this delicious cheese made from the milk of sheep that happily graze in the surrounding valleys.
You will see for yourself why Pienza is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its breathtaking valley is listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Landscape.
Not too far from Pienza through the scenic Tuscan countryside is Montepulciano, one of Italy’s splendid towns that boast both Medieval and Renaissance charm, style, and architecture.
Although Montepulciano is locally known as an important producer of local Tuscan food products, wine connoisseurs worldwide know it as the producer of the excellent red Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (Noble Wine of Montepulciano). Praised for centuries among Italy’s nobility as one of Italy’s finest wines, Montepulciano also earned the title “King of All Wines” in 1685 by poet Francesco Redi.
You will have free time on your own to enjoy a traditional Italian lunch at a local trattoria (your driver can offer suggestions), and sample wine varieties at any of the wine shops throughout the town. This tour offers you the excellent opportunity to explore the beautiful town, sample its delicious local wines and even buy some to take with you and enjoy later!
