Day 1: Rome, Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena

Board a comfortable coach bus and embark on your journey through the Chianti Region, marveling at the countryside and rolling hills as you drive. Stop at the ancient hillside village of Montepulciano, known for producing "Nobile di Montepulciano," one of Italy's most famous and oldest wines. Attend a wine tasting at one of the village's wine cellars, where you can also samples local meats and cheeses. Continue on to Pienza, a well-known Renaissance town famous for its pecorino cheese.
Proceed to Siena and take a walking tour of its historical city center. Admire palaces and squares, including the Piazza del Campo, home to a gorgeous cathedral and considered one of the world's most beautiful squares. Dine in Siena and stay overnight at a hotel.

Day 2: Tuscany

Eat breakfast in the hotel, then head to the hilltop city of San Gimignano. After admiring its artistic treasures, continue on to Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, famous for its agriculture. Pause here to enjoy a light snack and a wine tasting at a local farmhouse.
Progress to Lucca. After lunch, take a walk through the historical town center, whose streets are lined with antique shops. Admire landmarks like Anfiteatro Square, the San Martino Dome, and the Guinigi tower. In the afternoon, head to the Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa to see the famous Leaning Tower. After a long and exciting day of history, art, architecture, and delicious wine, head to La Spezia: dinner and overnight at the hotel.

Day 3: Cinque Terre

Eat breakfast at the hotel, then sail to the Cinque Terre. Constructed on incredibly rugged terrain, the villages are seemingly suspended on cliffs between the land and the sea. From the boat, snap pictures worthy of postcards.
The boat will stop for you to visit the most significant towns at leisure, including Portovenere, Vernazza, and Monterosso. In Portovenere, on the Gulf of Poets, marvel at its hallmark houses, colored in all shades of the rainbow. Finally, stop in Monterosso, the largest of the five villages. Marvel at the town's beautiful beaches and stare into the crystal clear sea waters to see stunning reefs. From Monterosso, catch a train back to La Spezia, where you will once more dine in the hotel.

Day 4: Carrara

Eat breakfast in the hotel, then drive to the Carrara Caves, quarries of marble carved into a mountain. The material used by Michelangelo to create his masterpiece sculptures came from these very caves! Tour the quarry museum, which has ancient tools and sculptures on display.
After your morning of marble, progress to Montecarlo di Lucca, a quaint town nestled in the hills where high-quality wine and olive oil are produced. Visit a farmhouse for lunch and sample delicious traditional Tuscan specialities, including olive oil, cheese, bread, pasta, and various regional wines. After this lovely and satiating experience, board the bus and set off for Rome, arriving in the evening.
