We head out of town on one of the most panoramic roads of Tuscany through the characteristic moonscapes of the Crete Senesi. We will have brief stops on the way for photo opportunities before visiting a quaint and non-touristic medieval hamlet or a Benedictine monastery.

We then enter the UNESCO heritage site of the Val D’orcia valley where you come across some of Tuscany’s most famous postcard pictures. We arrive at the beautiful utopian renaissance town of Pienza, one of the first towns to be entirely planned out on paper by architects and artists of the time. They were called upon by Pope Pius II - the humanist pope to help him in renovating his native town and bringing it to new splendor.

Pienza is rightly considered the gem of the renaissance in the Val d’Orcia. You will also have the opportunity of viewing the Romanesque church of Corsignano or spend your time shopping and enjoying the pretty alleys of this little town. After Pienza we make our way to a local dairy farm for a wholesome and refreshing lunch based on the fresh ingredients produced on the farm. Here you can learn about cheese making process, visit the farm's animals and learn about the lifestyle of the area. Lunch will be served on a panoramic terrace, weather permitting.

In the afternoon, we visit one of the biggest of the Tuscan hill towns, Montepulciano. This town was at first under the dominance of the medieval Siena and then under the renaissance Florence. Here you can recognize the influences of both towns in its architecture and art. The town is located on a steep hill overlooking the amazing views of Tuscany - Umbria border.

Visit the main square, Piazza Grande, and explore one of the many old wineries carved out of the ground below the city. This town is rich with many important palaces owned by the noble families that lived here.
Enjoy a brief cellar tour and tasting of the "Vino Nobile" of Montepulciano and sight-see around the stores, palaces, churches and streets of this proud hilltop town.
