Travel from Santa Maria Novella station in Florence to the Tuscan countryside, then hop out in Montalcino, the home of Brunello wine. With your guide, you’ll call in at an acclaimed winery to taste its wine and learn about the estate’s history from the site’s wine expert.

Continue with a walk through the town to admire the narrow lanes and surrounding countryside, then travel onward to Pienza. Here, you'll explore the quintessential Italian hill town on foot, and sample its famed pecorino cheese.

Before your return to Florence, there’s time for a last stop in Montepulciano, another hilltop town, famous for its namesake wine. Visit a Vino Nobile di Montepulciano cellar for a tasting and look around as you learn about the town and its beautiful wine.

Your day trip ends with a drop-off back in central Florence.
