Shore excursions in Italy ,Daily Tours and guided Limousine services.
We had an awesome day with Claudio our driver. He collected us promptly and took care to find out what we expected to get from our trip and made sure that he exceeded these expectations. He called ahead to book a trusted private tour guide who was waiting for us on our arrival in Pompeii - he was fantastic! And then we drove on to Sorrento, stopping at various places on the Amalfie Coast to take photographs and then we had a late lunch in Il Positano, before returning to Rome. Travelling with two young daughters, it was a long day trip, but memorable - and we all thought it was our best day of our week-long holiday to Rome.

  • Notes

EEnjoy a relaxing drive through Lazio and Tuscany before you reach your first destination: Montepulciano. Nestled between the Orcia Valley and Val di Chiana, Montepulciano is the quintessential Tuscan medieval village, boasting green landscapes of rolling hills, castle walls and ramparts, thermal springs and fine wines.

Try the local delicacies before you head to Orcia valley, an exceptional reflection of the way the landscape was rewritten in Renaissance times to reflect the ideals of good governance and to create an aesthetically pleasing picture. The colonization of the landscape involved creating new settlements for farmers and their families and the most dramatic example of a planned new town is Pienza. A small farming hamlet until the beginning of the 15th century, Pienza had the good fortune to be the birthplace of Enea Silvio Piccolomini, one of the greatest humanist scholars and the future Pope Pius II, who turned it into a little jewel of the Renaissance.

You will then drive across enchanting hills dotted with vineyards to Montalcino. This lovely medieval town owes its wealth and fame to the wisdom of his growers who have created and promoted one of the most famous Italian wines in the world: Brunello di Montalcino. Besides several churches of great interest , among which the Cathedral (built in Neoclassical style), the church of St. Egidio, of St. Agostino and St. Francis with its beautiful cloisters, and the Priori Palace (with its beautiful façade ornated with the coats of arms of the Podesta, once rulers of the city), it is definitely the Fortress that catches immediately the attention of the tourist arriving in Montalcino. This beautiful and imposing building, constructed in 1361 using part of the existing walls, has been wonderfully preserved and its interior can still be visited today. You will have time to stroll around the town and why not taste some local wine. At any time ask your driver to stop and take a picture if you are enjoying the views.
