Its ashes, gases and hot clouds claimed numerous lives but at the same time preserved the existing environment and a way of life typical of the ancient Roman society at its height. The layer of ashes preserved intact people and everyday items, food and domestic animals, all remained steady and hidden until the first half of 18th Century when regular digs were organized. At the end of the visit continue to Rome with arrival at the hotels or nearest point at about 21.00.

Itinerary: Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino.

A comfortable air-conditioned bus collects us in Rome and by mid-morning we’re in the ancient Etruscan town of Montepulciano. We’ll tour the town’s most important sights from the exposed brick Duomo and the main square to Punch’s Tower where Punch (without Judy) strikes his bell from the clock tower every hour. We’ll see ancient Etruscan wells and venture deep into medieval wine cellars still used today. Free time for photo.
Montalcino: stop at Sant’Antimo Abbey where stone walls ring with the sound of Gregorian chants. Lose yourself in the mystical ambiance and take the time to enjoy views over some of Tuscany’s most beautiful vineyards. This is where Italy’s best wine, Brunello di Montalcino, is produced and we’ll have a chance to enjoy an exemplary bottle on the next leg of our journey and a sure highlight – lunch in a typical Tuscan farm where we will be wined and dined with the finest local produce. Devour three courses of regional dishes that surprise and delight, washed down with local wines. Lunch is followed by a professional guided wine tasting of the wines produced on site.
Pienza: You will hear how this World Heritage site was conceived by Pope Pius II as a “utopian village” and get information on sites you may want to visit, such as the two Renaissance palaces and the beautiful Duomo. Pienza is a small town so we’ll split up here and take some time to wander alone, enjoying the serenity that is still true to the Pope’s vision today. Marvel at the ancient architecture, take in views of the rolling countryside beyond or get hopelessly, wonderfully lost in the town’s winding streets. Whatever you choose to do, be sure to make time to sample Pienza’s most important product – pecorino cheese. With satisfied appetites and bags packed with wine, cheese and pici pasta, we’ll meet back at the bus for a comfortable and scenic drive back to Rome.
