The Montepulciano Tours continue with a visit to Pienza and Montepulciano, two picturesque towns that form the landscape of Val dOrcia. Pienza is a perfect embodiment of medieval architectural beauty and is home to the succulent Pecorino cheese. At last, we will head to Montepulciano. It's a town of many Renaissance buildings that have witnessed the evolution of its long winemaking tradition. You will taste the famous Nobile di Montepulciano wine in a local winery.

Our Montepulciano wine tours from Florence introduce you a new aspect of Tuscany; An aspect that is natural and ready to wake up all your senses. While there are numerous wineries in Tuscany, Pienza and Montalcino offer you centuries-long traditions intertwined with history and art. Their velvety wines and the rustic ambiance of the ancient towns combine perfectly.


If you are considering joining one or two tours from Florence, this wine tasting expedition with a splash of sightseeing is a great choice. Besides the delicious tastings, we will give you a plenty of free time in each of the towns to explore on your own.

History Sneak Peek

All of the three towns we will visit poses turbulent histories that made their mark on the culture and architecture of these settlements.

For example, the foundation of Montalcino is work of a group of refugees from the town of Roselle. Despite the many changes of allegiances, rulers, and political conditions, the town managed to keep its medieval urban structure to this day.

On the other hand, Pienza is relatively young (at least by its name). Although the town stands on an ancient development of Etruscan origins, Corsignano, Pienza came about a bit later. It was founded by Pope Pius II to honor a great humanist, Enea Silvio Piccolomini.

Montepulciano, according to a legend, was founded by an Etruscan King Porsenna in the 6th century BC. Thanks to the towns strategic location, fertile farming land, and excellent winemaking climate, the town did very well for itself since its humble beginnings.

Book our Montepulciano wine tours from Florence today and enjoy a day full of succulent tastes, smells as well as sightseeing and intriguing histories.

The sites and town were exactly what we wanted. The wine tasting was wonderful and we had a lot of free time to explore the surroundings. I would have enjoyed a guided tour of all the town on the list, though, a bit more.
