Leave in the morning and after about 1 hour transfer we reach the characteristic town of Montepulciano*. Built in 1500 along a narrow ridge of limestone, well known all over the world for its imposing Renaissance palaces and mostly for the Vino Nobile, one of the most appreciated Tuscan wines all over the world. After my main explanations enjoy some free time on your own.
Next stop: Pienza. This is one of the most beautiful Tuscan towns, rare example of Renaissance architecture brought to completion. Enjoy my explanations and after have some free time for lunch and relax.
In early afternoon we'll continue through enchanting landscapes to reach Montalcino, famous throughout the world especially for the origin of one of the finest wines in the world: Brunello di Montalcino. Perched on a hill on which the mighty fourteenth century fortress rises still today. Free time for visits, and after we'll go to a top rated winery to taste the famous Brunello.
