Discover Monteriggioni, Montalcino and Pienza with a visit to the Templar museum, a tour of the medieval walls and optional wine tasting

Visiting the places of medieval Tuscany is comfortable and fun with this tour suitable for both Solo Travel and families.

Start from Florence for a journey through the natural beauties of Tuscany to discover walls, castles and Templar legends!

With equipped GT bus we will leave together for Monteriggioni, the small fortified village with walls dating back to 1200 AD which you can travel for an unprecedented immersive experience.

Monteriggioni has become famous in the world for its presence in a well-known gaming title where the protagonist fought the infamous Knights Templar, and a museum is dedicated to them included in the formula of this tour. 

After the free time it will be time to leave for the Val d'Orcia, a UNESCO heritage area characterized by expanses of emerald hills that turn into golden fields during the summer (you will certainly recognize a well-known scene from a famous film based on the life of a Gladiator of imperial Rome that was in fact shot on these hills along our route).

In this beautiful area of Tuscany we will be the first to visit Montalcino, a village extremely known by true Tuscans for its wine, one of the best in Italy.

In Montalcino it will be possible to taste local wines and products of the Tuscan medieval tradition.

After a rewarding walk through the streets and typical shops we will leave for the last stage of our tour, Pienza, a famous village known for its cheese production, we advise you to take advantage of the stage to include Pecorino di Pienza in your shopping.

A fabulous view of the panorama of Val d'Orcia will accompany our return to Florence scheduled for the end of the day.
