Setting off early by van we'll climb through vineyard adorned hills to Montepulciano, our first stop in Tuscany, to visit winery cellars that are housed in caves original carved by the ancient Etruscans and sample the famous Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. For lunch we'll stop in picture-perfect Pienza, gateway to Val d'Orcia. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Val d'Orcia has some of the most iconic scenery on the planet and was celebrated by painters of the Renaissance. To stretch our legs after lunch we'll do a gentle Tuscan hill walk before wrapping up the day at Bagno Vignoni, a hot springs resort popular back to Roman times where we'll stay in an elegant guest house.
