Here, along the famous wine route “Chiantigiana”, hills of vineyards and olive groves are a perfect background of your journey. You will recognize the symbol of the Gallo Nero (black rooster) among the countryside and hilltop towns you will see here and there, many of which owe their names to Chianti, such as Castellina or Radda in Chianti. After strolling through the tiny village, you will stop at a local winery for a superb wine tasting and light lunch. Then, a comfortable journey across the beautiful countryside will take you to the town of the towers: San Gimignano. It is a Middle Ages town that rises on a hill and thanks to its still intact towers, San Gimignano is unique in the world, so peculiar and historically important that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990.

Day 3: Nobile & Brunello Wine Tour.

Meet your driver at your hotel lobby and departure to Montepulciano, a former Roman Settlement situated on “Mons Politianus”. This borough owes its present appearance not just to the middle ages but also to the Renaissance, as we can see from numerous churches and palaces built by Antonio da Sangallo and by Michelozzo. During the visit of the town you will take part to a delightful tasting of the famous Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The next stop will be Pienza that is famous not only for its Pecorino cheese, but it has been the first renaissance town in Europe, a model of perfect illuminate architecture for Florence, Paris, etc.… Art lovers, however, will associate this small south Tuscan town with Enea Silvio Piccolomini, later Pope Pius II, who asked Bernardo Rossellino to transform his birthplace into an ideal city of the Renaissance. Enjoy here a typical lunch with tasting of pecorino cheese and local products. At last you will admire Montalcino that is like an “island” in the heart of Tuscany, on a hilltop 564 meters height above sea level, immersed in the green environment that is still intact and wild. Today, undoubtedly, the image of Montalcino is enriched by the “Brunello”, one of the most vintage wine of Italy, a DOCG wine that exists thanks to the soil and favorable climatic conditions of this Tuscan “island”. Enjoy a Brunello wine tour and tasting. At the end of the tour your personal driver will return you to your location.

Meet your driver at your hotel lobby and departure to Bolgheri. The village has developed around the medieval castle (extensively remodelled over the centuries) which stands on a modest hill accessible through the charming Viale dei Cipressi, a road almost five kilometres long that begins in the valley, on the Via Aurelia. Take your time to stroll on the historical center, before heading to a local winery where you will enjoy a superb wine tasting and light lunch (shared tour up to 10 participants). After a comfortable drive among the Tuscan countryside, you will reach the charming little village of Volterra, one of the most ancient town in Tuscany. The Etruscan origins of Volterra are still visible while walking along the walls of the town. Just outside the walls, you can admire the Archaeological area with a well preserver Roman theater and other remains. You will also admire Piazza dei Priori with its oldest town hall in Tuscany, and the Duomo. During the visit you can see a handcraft Alabaster shop and discover the methods of working of the stone, symbol of the town since its Etruscans origins. At the end of the tour your personal driver will return you to your location.
