Take an unforgettable tour of Tuscany’s panoramic countryside - the rolling hills, winding country roads lined with cypress trees and hay bales, olive groves and vineyards come together in perfect harmony to create the picture-perfect image that we have of Tuscany.
Visit Mario's winery which houses over 100 years of wine making history and taste his Brunello, one of Italy's most pretigious wines.
Stop in Pienza, quintessential Tuscan village with epic views over the surrounding countryside, and famous for the production of Pecorino cheese.
Continue to unwind at the Rapolano Hot Springs. Soak in the naturally occurring therapeutic waters, used to heal ailments as far back as Roman times. Today, the thermal water is channeled into seven pools of varying temperatures, ranging from 70 to 120 degrees.
The thermal pools are surrounded by the beautiful countryside of southern Tuscany, known as the Crete Senesi or Senese Clay. The distinctive grey colouration of the soil gives the landscape an appearance often described as lunar.
Join us for this authentic Tuscan wellness experience and start the weekend refreshed and relaxed. A day of indulgence and pure relaxation!

Antica Querciolaia Thermal Baths
Priceless source of health and wellness, the thermal waters of the Antica Querciolaia were known in ancient times as far back as the V-VI centuries B.C. Traces of Roman bath constructions were found and mentioned in XIV-century documents from the city of Siena.
Each thermal spring has different mineral characteristics and healing properties. Antica Querciolaia is calcium-bicarbonate rich, with a crystalline transparency and a slightly salty taste which helps regulate muscle tone, reduces muscle tension, has an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect, and helps with localized chronic arthrosis.
You need to bring your swimsuit, towel and flip flops to the hot springs. There are locker rooms with showers and hairdryers. The lockers require a 2 euro coin to relaese the key which you can attach to your swimsuit. The 2 euro will be returned when you unlock your locker.
TIP: If you want to shower before getting back on the bus, it is a good idea to bring a second towel. Usually your first towel will be saturated from getting in and out of the pools.
For the colder months you can enter the main outdoor thermal pool from inside the building.
All entry fees are inlcuded in the cost of the tour. You will need some cash for drinks and snacks along the way.
Wine and cheese can be purchased with cash or credit card.
