You will be able to tour the historic cellars, explore the vineyards, and indulge in the breathtaking scenery.

Day tour experiences to explore the Tuscan countryside are also available from Rome.
Tuscany is one of the most beautiful regions in Italy, with medieval villages sitting atop hilltops, rolling hills covered in vineyards producing some of the best wines in the world and farmhouses and villas at the end of cypress-lined lanes. You can decide to visit Tuscany in a day or spend more days in a dream accommodation in the countryside, if you want a more relaxing stay at your own pace. Some parts of Tuscany can be reached with public transportation but many of the small villages are not. So a car might be the best option to explore this area.
