TOUR DESCRIPTION

Enjoy a private tour of Montalcino, Pienza and The Abbey of Sant'Antimo with an excellent English-speaking tour guide. Tuscany is a great daytrip from Rome or if you stay in Florence great solutiion for your tuscany private excursion day . This day trip in Tuscany will travel south of Florence and head towards the province of Siena, passing through the Superstrada del Palio, named after Siena's famous bareback horse race, and through the beautiful heart of the Chianti wine region, a spectacular landscape composed of vineyards and olive groves. You will get a chance to take the Cassia road, one of the 10 ancient Roman consular roads still in use today.

This Tuscany private tour takes you to the town of Montalcino, where you will visit the 14th century fortress, the cathedral and the old Etruscan hilltop streets dominating the valley for miles around. Montalcino is world famous as the birthplace of one of the finest wines of Italy, the Brunello di Montalcino. You can pick up a few bottles of this fabulous red at a winery or in one of the shops you'll find on your stroll through the town of Montalcino.

You can also customize a private wine tasting tour in Montalcino to include one of the most respected wine producers in Tuscany. There are several options to choose from for guided cellar tours and wine tasting of the well respected red, the renowned Brunello di Montalcino. The producers wine experts conduct the tours.

You will also tour Tuscany's jewel, Pienza, as complete a Renaissance creation as any in Italy. Pope Pius II conceived Pienza, his birthplace, as a Utopian "new town." The construction of Pienza began in 1459; architect Bernardo Rossellino worked on its main sites under the guide of Leon Battista Alberti, the great theorist of Renaissance art, building and town planning.

You will have free time to wander through the lovely streets of Pienza. Note the street names: Via dell'Amore (Street of Love), Via del Bacio (Street of the Kiss), and Via della Fortuna (Street of Luck). The beautiful Via del Casello has a spectacular panoramic view of the Orcia Valley. You may also enjoy the great shopping in Corso Rossellino, or visit the beautiful cathedral and the Pope Palace. Pienza is known all over Italy for its fragrant, flavorful Pecorino cheese, which you can sample here.

Your Tuscany day trip also takes you to Sant'Antimo abbey, of the finest Romanesque churches in Tuscany. Originally part of a 9th century Benedictine monastery, Sant'Antimo was supposedly founded by Charlemagne himself. The present building, begun in 1118, incorporates parts of the Carolingian works, including the crypt. An important monastic community once flourished here; today, the monks here follow the rule of St. Benedict, praying seven times a day with Gregorian chants. Time permitting, you may be able to witness the monks chanting their prayers
