With an area of 23,000 square kilometers, you can spend a lifetime exploring Tuscany. We have a special route that takes you to the hilltop region where villages have no cars, wine is still stored in underground caves and even the belltowers are dramatic. You’ll discover the history of the mysterious Etruscans who ruled before the Romans and soak up the views from the Montepulciano town walls over the hills. You’ll be eager to sit down to a three-course Tuscan feast and taste the world-famous Brunello di Montalcino wine. The food and wine are all produced locally, so we guarantee you’ll taste nothing fresher. While all the regions in Italy compete over food, Tuscany is a byword for local produce and its wine is the best in the world. Food and wine is not all it is known for.

Another Italian World Heritage Site, it was rebuilt by Pope Pius II in the Renaissance to showcase the idea of urban perfection.
