Hi, I have arranged for a private car tour for 9 hours. We will be picked up at our hotel in Florence at 9am and our day will end when we're dropped off in Siena. We are staying 2 nights in Siena.
So, this car tour will be to small towns and wineries in the Val d'Orcia region. I basically can decide what towns and wineries to see. It seems that Pienza, Montalcino and Montepulciano are highly recommended. Can someone help me with ideas for this 9 hour day trip? I presume we'll stop for lunch but I'm not sure where to stop. Not sure how long to allocate to each town, or if these towns are really the best to see. My mom and sister would have trouble with steep steps so that's a consideration too. My mom is mostly interested in seeing the picturesque countryside. The idea of wine and possibly lunch while overlooking a great view of Tuscany sounds perfect.
Thanks for any advice!!
