En route to Florence, enjoy a relaxing drive through Lazio and Tuscany. Travel through olive groves and vineyards and stop for cheese tasting in Pienza before arriving at the thermal baths of S.Giovanni in Rapolano Terme.
The pecorino cheese of Pienza is one of the best in Italy and for centuries it has embodied the taste of the land and the traditions of one of Tuscany's most beautiful valleys, the Val d'Orcia. Sometimes known as 'Pecorino della Val d'Orcia' or 'Cacio di Pienza' it is produced between October and July and seasoned for up to 2 months to give it its distinctive flavour.
Until the beginning of the 15th century, Pienza was a small farming hamlet, but it had the good fortune to be the birthplace of Enea Silvio Piccolomini, one of the greatest humanist scholars and the future Pope Pius II, who turned it into a little jewel of the Renaissance.
Do stop by nearby Monticchiello which is located right in the middle of the Orcia valley. This small walled town was originally a XII century hospital for pilgrims and it is as big as it was at the time. If you are wondering where the classic Tuscan postcards are photographed, it's here!
Proceed to the thermal baths of Rapolano Terme and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the thermal baths. All you need is a bathrobe for when you come out. Rapolano is well known for its mix of history, culture and natural resources. Founded by the Romans, the area boasts two ancient thermal baths—Antica Querciolaia and Terme di San Giovanni—both open year-round and offering visitors a range of treatments for every possible need or wish.
This tour is also available starting in Florence and ending in Rome.
