When you think of Italy, what comes to mind? Perhaps its history and culture; maybe it's Tuscan landscapes and Renaissance art; or could it be the delicious Mediterranean food and rich wines?

Well, Bellarome have combined all this in to a comprehensive and delighful tour of Tuscany and Umbria that takes you off the beaten track to experience a taste of all that is so essentially Italian.

This day tour from Rome is a lovely experience for couples and includes wine tasting in the heart of Tuscany. It is the perfect way to explore the Italian countryside, even if you only have a short time in the country.

 

Tour itinerary

Leaving from Rome, you will head north over the Tiber Valley to the town of Cortona, which is considered "untouched" by the modern world as it remains little changed since the Middle Ages. You may recognise this quait little part of Italy as it featured in the Oscar-winning film, "La Vita è Bella", and was described by American novelist Frances Mayes in "Under the Tuscan Sun". Here, you'll take a leisurely stroll through the historic centre to absorb Italian culture and everyday life before continuing on your journey to the shores of Lake Trasimeno, where you'll have the opportunity to buy local produce.

After being treated to lunch in a popular restaurant we continue through the hills of the Chianti region and stop in Montepulciano, a hilltop town famed for its deep ruby red wine, called Vino Nobile. Here, you will have the opportunity to visit one of the town's oldest wine cellars, which is carved from tufo rock and truly charming! Here, you can learn the secrets of the Chianti winemakers and, of course, you will have the opportunity taste the final result!

After an unforgettable day in the North Italy countryside, you will be returned to Rome by around 7-8 pm.
