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.

  • Description
  • Notes

En route to Florence, enjoy a relaxing drive through Lazio and Tuscany before you reach your first destination: Montepulciano. Nestled between the Val D’Orcia and Val di Chiana, Montepulciano is the quintessential Tuscan medieval village, boasting a green landscape of rolling hills, castle walls and ramparts, thermal springs and fine wine.

Try the local delicacies before you head to Val d'Orcia, 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 proceed to San Gimignano, Italy’s ‘Medieval Manhattan’ or the city of the belle torri (beautiful towers) rising imperiously above the vineyards of its own wine-growing area. Built as status symbols and defensive outposts, the towers played a significant role in the internecine feuds that eventually led to the town's downfall. Prior to its eventual decline into a sleepy backwater, the town prospered through its position along the main pilgrim route from Northern Europe to Rome. Today it is better known for its tourism, wine production and rich artwork. Piazza del Duomo is a good starting point from which to explore the historical buildings of the town. The Collegiate church, situated at the town's heart, is most famous for its frescoes of outstanding beauty, the greater part of which dating from the 14th century, represent the work of painters of the Sienese school, influenced by the Byzantine traditions of Duccio and the Early Renaissance developments of Giotto. The southern end of town is the more commercial part of San Gimignano and if you stroll along Via San Giovanni, you will find a concentration of shops selling handicraft such as ceramics and woodcraft, embroidery, leather bags, books and other souvenirs.

Now it is time to drive on to your Florence destination.
