Next, make your way through the picturesque streets to the peak of the town, where a magnificent sight will take your breath away: sunny rolling hills, ancient oaks, picturesque olive groves, scenic country roads winding through perfect vineyards, and isolated cypress trees. Be sure to have your camera ready! The following stop is Pienza, which stands high upon a hill and dominates the Orcia Valley with its extraordinary views. Enjoy a unique cheese tasting session of the famous Pecorino cheese (included in the tour!) and explore the quaint alleyways of this small town at your leisure. The last stop will bring you to Montepulciano, home of the famous Vino Nobile vineyards and, more recently, famous for the filming of the vampire movie "New Moon." Enjoy your second wine tasting while visiting a real dungeon, where the wine is historically stored under the ancient walls of the winery, before heading back to Florence..
